Vanderbilt DE calls out Alabama after upset win over Kansas State
Nifae Lealao is feeling rather confident about his team’s 3-0 start.
After Vanderbilt upset No. 18-ranked Kansas State on Saturday with a 14-7 win, the Commodores defensive end called out Alabama ahead of Vandy’s conference-opener against them next week, per WSMV’s Justin Beasley.

It goes without saying that the top-ranked Crimson Tide will be a much tougher beast for Vanderbilt to slay — talent and coaching aside, they haven’t beaten Alabama since 1984 and trail the all-time head-to-head 61-18-4. But for a team that is usually more of a joke in the SEC than anything, you can’t blame Vandy for puffing their chests out a bit after a strong start to the year.
