NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Vanderbilt's national championship in baseball has raised the bar on campus. The Commodores have a new football coach and setting their sights higher on the gridiron as well.

Linebacker Kyle Woestmann says the football team watched the Commodores clinch the College World Series in June and believes it's time to win their own title starting with winning the Southeastern Conference.

Woestmann says the SEC crown usually gives a team a shot at a national title. The linebacker says the key is focusing on one SEC game at a time and see where they stand at season's end.

First-year coach Derek Mason also believes in dreaming big. He has talked about winning the SEC - an idea previously laughable for a program that has never won 10 games in a single season.
