Vanderbilt steamrolls Presbyterian 58-0
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Vanderbilt's Zac Stacy and Brian Kimbrow each went over 100 yards, and Austyn-Carta Samuels threw for 195 more in his debut as a Commodore, as VU rolled over Presbyterian by a 58-0 score.
Those looking for drama were at the wrong game. Stacy took the first offensive snap of the game for VU and raced a school-record 86 yards as part of an eight-carry, 174-yard day. The Commodores put points on the board on 10 of their first 11 drives, the only non-scorer being a three-second possession at the end of the first half.
Vandy had over 600 yards on the day. Kimbrow, a freshman, had 137 of those yards on 14 carries.
After his opening run, Stacy got the ball the first two carries on the next drive, breaking those for 50 yards and getting VU into PC territory. The drive stalled inside the 10, but Carey Spear's 23-yard field goal put more points on the board.
Archibald Barnes forced a fumble on the Blue Hose's next possession, and Baron Dixon recovered at the PC 30. Wes Tate's 6-yard touchdown on fourth-and-1 put Vandy up 17-0.
Another Spear field goal, this one from 28 yards, pushed the lead to 20.
The 'Dores nearly gave up a score when the Blue Hose had a third-and-goal from the 5, but Vandy's Trey Wilson instead stepped in front of a pass about three yards deep in the end zone and took it the distance to put Vandy up 27-0.
VU out-gained the Blue Hose 297-127 at the half, with Stacy's 140 yards on four carries leading the way.
It took VU exactly 3:05 of the second half to tack on another touchdown. Carta-Samuels hit Steven Scheu with a four-yard throw on a third-and-goal from the 4, and Ryan Fowler's PAT put the 'Dores up, 34-0.
About five minutes later, Tate leapt over his offensive line and fell into the end zone from one yard out for another score.
Warren Norman added a 3-yard scoring run with 3:38 left in the third quarter, and Kimbrow tacked on a 49-yarder less than two minutes later for a 55-0 margin.
Spear added a 41-yard field goal with 11 minutes left in the game.
