COLUMBIA, S.C. -- It took more than two decades for
Vanderbilt to finally beat Steve Spurrier. But boy, this one was
worth the wait for the Commodores.
Mackenzi Adams threw two touchdown passes and D.J. Moore had two
key interceptions as Vanderbilt upset No. 6 South Carolina 17-6
Saturday, ending Spurrier's unblemished record against the school
that began in 1987.
Spurrier came into this 14-0 alltime vs. the Commodores (4-3,
2-3 Southeastern Conference) and, with the Gamecocks (6-2, 3-2)
ranked as high as they'd been since 1984, seemed a strong bet to
keep that streak alive.
Instead, Vanderbilt took a 17-0 lead in the first quarter and
held off Spurrier's club the rest of the way.
Vanderbilt's players rushed to the small section of Commodore
fans when the game ended, jumping and pumping their fists in
And why not? The Commodores hadn't beaten a team ranked this
highly since topping No. 6 LSU, 7-6, in 1937.
