Stanford 41, Vanderbilt 23

Associated Press

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Tanner McKee ran for a touchdown and threw for two more as Stanford beat Vanderbilt 41-23.

Vanderbilt (1-2) lost its eighth straight at home. The Commodores' last home win was Nov. 23, 2019.

Stanford (2-1) took control scoring 13 points in the final 1:53 of the second quarter. The Cardinal then scored on the first possession of the third quarter for 20 points.

"It was fast," Shaw said. "A lot of stuff happened."

Joshua Karty kicked a 46-yard field goal, then Jimmy Wyrick picked off a Ken Seals' pass for the first interception of his career. That set up McKee's second TD pass of the half, a 5-yarder to Brycen Tremayne with 40 seconds left.

The Cardinal defense forced the first three-and-out by Vandy. Casey Filkins returned the punt 48 yards to the Vandy 22, and an illegal formation penalty on the Commodores moved the ball to the 17. Karty came out for the easy 35-yarder for a 27-14 halftime lead. Those were the first field goals of the sophomore kicker's career.

Stanford made it 20 straight after forcing Vanderbilt three-and-out again to open the third quarter. McKee capped a 55-yard drive with a 5-yard TD pass to Jay Symonds for a 34-14 lead.

Vanderbilt coach Clark Lea called it a frustrating point in the game and something that will be a teaching point. The Commodores had the ball to start the third quarter and went three-and-out.

"That was a killer swing of momentum for us tonight," Lea said.

McKee finished with 218 yards passing in the second straight start of his career. The sophomore completed at least one pass to nine different receivers. Nathaniel Peat and E.J. Smith ran for a TD apiece.

"I feel like we had answers because we were 100% with what they were going to do (on defense)," McKee said.

The Cardinal had a 422-398 edge in total offense as Vanderbilt scored a TD on the final play of the game.
