NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Vanderbilt Commodores are choosing to be optimistic, looking at their season as a glass half full.

Yes, they're mired in a stretch where they've lost 5 of their last seven games. Yes, they're 2-5 in the Southeastern Conference play and in a five-way tie at the bottom of the league. And yes, Alabama (13-7, 5-2), tied for third in the SEC, is coming in Saturday afternoon.

Still, coach Kevin Stallings says the Commodores have lost three one-possession games and easily could be 5-2. Now the key is fixing mistakes that keep costing Vanderbilt (8-11, 2-5) when the game is on the line to avoid coming up short yet again.

Stallings sees plenty of time left for Vanderbilt to reroute this season with results hopefully showing in the win column.
