The win also marked Vanderbilt's first victory over Tennessee on the Volunteers' home field in Knoxville since 1975.
While at Vanderbilt, Cutler was a three-year captain and four-year starter, setting school career records for total offense (9,953 yds.), touchdown passes (59), passing yards (8,697), pass completions (710), pass attempts (1,242) and combined touchdowns (76).
Cutler graduated from Vanderbilt in 2005 with a bachelor's degree in human and organizational development.
Cutler was expected to be a high draft pick in the 2006 NFL Draft, and was ranked by many experts as the third-best quarterback prospect, after Matt Leinart of USC and Vince Young of Texas.
Jay Christopher Cutler (born April 29, 1983) is an American football quarterback for the Chicago Bears of the National Football League (NFL).
He was drafted by the Denver Broncos in the first round of the 2006 NFL Draft. Jay Cutler was born in Santa Claus, Indiana, in 1983.
With his senior-season performance, Cutler became the second Commodore to throw for more than 3,000 yards in a season, while his 273 completions and 21 touchdowns ranked second on the school’s single-season list.
He led the Commodores to victories over Wake Forest, Arkansas, Ole Miss, Richmond and Tennessee.
The 2005 season, Cutler's final year of play at Vanderbilt, was his most successful.
As an 11-game starter, he completed 273 of 462 passes (59.1%) for 3,073 yards, 21 touchdowns and nine interceptions, as he became the first Commodore to win the SEC Offensive Player of the Year (coaches and media) since 1967.
Reflecting on Cutler's college career, former Denver Broncos safety John Lynch said, "If this guy can take a bunch of future doctors and lawyers and have them competing against the Florida Gators, this guy is a stud." The Commodores ended their season, and Cutler's Vanderbilt career, at Tennessee against the Tennessee Volunteers with a 28–24 win.
The victory was Vanderbilt's first over the Volunteers since 1982, the year before Cutler was born.
His team's perfect record during his senior year included the school's first 3A state championship, where Heritage Hills beat Zionsville in overtime, 27–24.
