Vanderbilt picks up their first SEC win in nearly two years

The Vanderbilt Commodores (3-4) won its first Southeastern Conference game in nearly two games. They defeated the struggling Missouri Tigers (4-4) 10-3 today at Vanderbilt Stadium.

This big win snaps an 11-game conference losing streak. It was the second-longest active streak entering this week.

It is also Derek Mason’s first conference win, as he had a goose egg in that department. It is their first conference win since Nov. 23rd, 2013.

While Vanderbilt won the game, the Tigers have not scored a touchdown in 13 consecutive quarters.

Missouri has not not scored a TD in 199 minutes, 16 seconds since Oct. 3 in a 24-10 win over the South Carolina Gamecocks.

The Tigers have been outscored 40-12 during the past three games, all losses.

The Commodores went up 7-0 in the second quarter when Ralph Webb scored on a one-yard run with a Tommy Openshaw extra point. With 49 seconds remaining in the quarter, Tigers kicker Andrew Baggett converted on a 35-yard field goal to make it 7-3.

With 9:12 left in the game, Openshaw made a 40-yard field goal for the 10-3 score.
