VANDERBILT 51, CHATTANOOGA 6

NASHVILLE, Tennessee (Ticker) -- Norval McKenzie rushed for
102 yards as Vanderbilt used an efficient ground game to coast
to a 51-6 victory over Division I-AA Chattanooga.

The Commodores (1-1) rushed for 284 yards and scored four of
their six touchdowns on on the ground. Quarterback Jay Cutler
and Matthew Tant had one-yard runs in the first 7:56 as
Vanderbilt opened a 13-0 lead.

Ebrahim Tehrani had an 87-yard return on the ensuing kickoff,
but Chattanooga (0-2) fumbled the two-point conversion.

Erik Davis caught a 23-yard TD pass and Kwane Doster scored on a
two-yard run to extend Vanderbilt's advantage to 27-6 with
12:44 left in the first half.

After McKenzie's 24-yard TD run, the Commodores capped their big
first half when cornerback Dominique Morris picked off a pass
and raced in for a 47-yard score at the 5:33 mark.

Cutler completed 8-of-15 passes for 186 yards, but the big
effort on the ground helped Vanderbilt maintain possession for
more than 35 minutes and improve to 18-1 against its intrastate
rival.

The 51 points were the most for Vanderbilt since scoring 58
against The Citadel on October 9, 1999.
