The Vanderbilt Commodores are 5-0 for the first time in over 20 years. 5-0. Just let that sink in…
Vanderbilt rallies to stun Auburn, 14-13
Mackenzi Adams, filling in for ailing Chris Nickson, led scoring drives in the second and third quarters to put Vanderbilt in front to stay, 14-13.
Adams completed 13 of 23 passes for 152 yards and two touchdowns on the night. He also ran for 49 yards on 14 carries. Sean Walker caught four passes for 66 yards.
One big play by the defense that saved the game for Vanderbilt was a goal line stand in the first quarter. Auburn drove to the Commodore one and chose to go for it on fourth down. The Vandy defense stuffed Ben Tate for no gain. A missed extra point on Auburn's second touchdown also prevented the game from going to overtime.
The Commodores pinned Auburn deep inside their 5-yard line for their final drive. Vanderbilt's Myron Lewis intercepted a Chris Todd pass to seal the huge win.
Vanderbilt is 5-0 for the first time since 1943. The Commodores will visit Mississippi State on Saturday. Vanderbilt has not been 6-0 since the 1928 season. Stay tuned for more on VandyMania.com.
