Although rivals in the SEC East Division, humanity supersedes anything on the gridiron between Vanderbilt and South Carolina. 

The Vanderbilt Football official Twitter page posted a picture of one of its equipment trucks Wednesday. The plan is for the vehicle to be chock-full of bottled water cases, which will be delivered to Columbia on Friday. Donations of cases of water will be accepted on Thursday until 7 p.m. 

It’s a wonderful gesture by the Commodores, whose efforts will surely help those afflicted by the displacement and a lack of clean water.
