Vanderbilt routs Mississippi 30-7

NASHVILLE, TN (AP) - Larry Smith ran for a touchdown, and Trey Wilson returned one of his two interceptions for a 52-yard TD as Vanderbilt scored 21 straight in the second quarter and beat Mississippi 30-7 Saturday in making James Franklin the first new Commodores coach to start 3-0 since World War II.

The win marks Vanderbilt's first 3-0 start since 2008 when the Commodores won their first bowl since 1955. The Commodores also beat Mississippi (1-2) in the Southeastern Conference opener for both teams for their fifth win in seven years in this series.

Vanderbilt picked off five passes, all off Zack Stoudt, and Wilson's interception return for a TD is the Commodores' third this season.
