    COLUMBIA, Mo. – Zac Stacy ran for two touchdowns and 72 yards and Vanderbilt came away with a road victory on Saturday night against Missouri. Stacy scored a touchdown with 13 minutes to play in the game to put Vanderbilt up 16-9, and the Commodores (2-3, 1-2 SEC) held off Mizzou to win 19-15.

    Missouri (3-3, 0-3) outgained Vandy by 100 yards for the game and moved the ball effectively on the ground with 150 rushing yards, but it was not enough for the Tigers to secure their first conference win as members of the SEC. Kendial Lawrence ran 21 times for Mizzou, picking up 92 yards, but the Tigers’ only TD of the night came on an 85-yard Corbin Berkstresser pass to Bud Sasser.

    Missouri was down 19-15 with 7:20 to go in the game, but the Tigers could not mount a scoring drive in the final minutes.
