Vanderbilt strikes first in Nashville

Someone has finally gotten on the board in Nashville.

After an unproductive first quarter of "action" Vanderbilt broke the scoring drought in the second quarter when quarterback Larry Smith found a hole in Ole Miss' defense, cut to the right on a draw and sprinted into the end zone for a 19-yard touchdown.

But things didn't stop there. Almost exactly a minute later, Vandy's Trey Wilson intercepted Zack Stoudt's pass and returned it 52 yards for the score, making it 14-0. That makes two interceptions for Stoudt in the game and three defensive touchdowns for the Commodores in the past three games.

With the second quarter dying down, both teams had combined for 215 yards and three turnovers. Yuck.

One bright spot for the Rebels, who have just 104 of those yards, is that running back Brandon Bolden is back in the lineup after suffering a fracture in his ankle in the season opener against BYU. He currently has 27 yards on five carries and one catch for 14 yards.
