NASHVILLE — Missouri's offense ran Vanderbilt out of its own stadium 51-28 in the Tigers' first SEC game of the season.

James Franklin and company scored on eight of their first nine drives, the only smudge on that near-perfect line a kneel-down to end the first half. The Tigers quarterback finished with 341 total yards and four touchdowns, while his offense racked up 523 net yards.

Missouri (5-0) gave up four touchdowns on defense, but the pass rush made a big impact for the second week in a row. Defensive end Michael Sam accounted for three of the team's seven sacks, and an early Kentrell Brothers interception helped the Tigers build a 17-0 lead halfway through the first quarter.

The team travels to Athens, Ga. next Saturday for a game against the Georgia Bulldogs (4-1). Kickoff is 11 a.m. CT.
