Missouri falls to Vanderbilt, drops to (0-3) in SEC play

Posted:

 

 COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- A botched Missouri extra-point snap and a bobbled punt attempt that led to a safety helped Vanderbilt beat Missouri 19-15 Saturday night, depriving the former Big 12 school of its first SEC win.

   Missouri (3-3, 0-3 Southeastern Conference) took an early 6-0 lead and kept Vanderbilt from gaining a first down until nearly nine minutes into the second quarter. But Missouri couldn't muster much offense after an early injury to starting quarterback James Franklin, who sprained his left knee on a first-quarter run and didn't return.

   Backup quarterback Corbin Berkstresser was just 9 of 30 for 189 yards, including an 85-yard scoring pass to Bud Sasser that cut a Commodores' fourth-quarter lead to 16-15. Missouri missed the extra point and a chance to tie on a bad snap.

   Zac Stacy rushed for 72 yards and two touchdowns on 29 carries for Vanderbilt (2-3, 1-2), which earned its first conference win.
