Ole Miss needed a big play or two to generate some sort of momentum against Vanderbilt in the second half. What the Rebels didn't need was to give up one.
But they did and they find themselves trailing Vanderbilt 30-0 at the start of the fourth quarter. After a safety made it 23-0 in favor of the Commodores, Vanderbilt blew it wide open with a 77-yard touchdown run by Zac Stacy. Stacy has 167 yards on 10 carries this afternoon and the Commodores have 246 rushing yards and three touchdowns.
In Vandy's 28-14 win against Ole Miss in 2010, Warren Norman carved up the Rebels' defense for an 80-yard touchdown run late as well.
Entering the fourth, Ole Miss had just 157 yards of a total offense. There is absolutely nothing going on for the Rebels when they have the ball.
