Vanderbilt makes opening statement

By ZAC ELLIS After short trip down Interstate 24 to Murfreesboro, Vanderbilt managed to start its season off with a bang.

The Commodores (1-0, 0-0 SEC) scored touchdowns on their first two possessions and kept Middle Tennessee’s own offense at bay to beat the Blue Raiders (0-1, 0-0 C-USA), 28-6, at Floyd Stadium.

The Dores then turned a Bryce Lewis interception of MTSU quarterback Brent Stockstill into a 1-yard end-zone dive from running back Ralph Webb.

He started hot by leading the Dores to two straight scores to open the game and completed 13 of 18 throws for 196 yards and two touchdowns by halftime.

Wright finished with four tackles and a team-leading two sacks, providing an extra spark for Vanderbilt’s defense, which had to replace All-American linebacker Zach Cunningham.
