VANDERBILT WIN STREAK OVER
The Bulldogs scored on their first drive on a Adam Carlson 33-yard field goal.
Vanderbilt, which was limited to only 62 yards total passing on 20 attempts, took advantage of an MSU 4-yard punt and a personal foul to get their first score. Chris Nickson scored on a 1-yard dive giving the visitors a 7-3 lead heading into the locker room.
The tough MSU defense continued to frustrate the Commodore offense into the second half. Mississippi State retook the lead on a Brandon Henderson 4-yard pass from walk-on quarterback Tyson Lee. The Bulldogs added another score when Christian Ducre punched it in from 3-yards out. Down 17-7, the Commodore staff elected to go with backup quarterback Mackenzi Adams, who quickly guided Vanderbilt on a 10-play, 57 yard scoring drive that was culminated on a Jeff Jennings 2-yard scoring run.
However, Vanderbilt went 3 and out on their next drive and then Adams threw an interception to MSU's Karlin Brown to seal the Bulldog win.
Vanderbilt drops to 5-1, 3-1 SEC, and will travel to Georgia next Saturday. Mississippi State improvss to 2-4, 1-2 SEC, and will travel to Knoxville to face Tennessee next Saturday.
