BOWLING GREEN, Ky. -- According to Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason, his team wasnt exactly a finely turned machine on Saturday.However, despite plenty of sputtering and missing, the Commodores rallied and escaped with a 31-30 victory at Western Kentucky, thanks to a failed 2-point conversion by the Hilltoppers at the end of the first overtime.Defensively, we leaked a lot of oil out there today, but we came up big when we needed to, Mason said. That was important.Kyle Shurmurs 5-yard pass to Nathan Marcus on the first possession of overtime gave Vanderbilt (2-2) its first lead of the game, and Tommy Openshaw added the point after for the Commodores.Western Kentucky (2-2) answered quickly, needing just two plays to find the end zone on Mike Whites 8-yard pass to Shaquille Johnson in overtime.Hilltoppers coach Jeff Brohm elected to go for two points. White rolled to his right, but his pass was deflected into the air off Anthony Wales helmet and ruled incomplete, as Vanderbilt players rushed the field to celebrate the comeback victory.Brohm said he thought his team had a chance to win it with the 2-point try.I thought we had a chance to win. I thought the play was decent. Mike maybe put a little too much heat on it. Id have to see the film. But, it ricocheted off (Anthony Wales) helmet, but it was a little hot coming out, Brohm said of the final play.Wales said it was a play he should have made, regardless of the velocity of the pass.It was a great play call, they bit on the outside. It was attempted to me. It was a little hot, but I should have caught it. Im a playmaker and I put that play on me, he said.Vanderbilts offense, which had struggled for much of the game, put together two impressive fourth-quarter drives for 10 points, including going 75 yards in the final 1:02 of regulation in seven plays to tie the game at 24-24 and force overtime. A pass interference call in the end zone on Western Kentuckys DeAndre Simmons against Vanderbilts Trent Shurfield gave the Commodores the ball at the Hilltopper 2 with three seconds to play in regulation. Vanderbilt running back Ralph Webb, who had three rushing touchdowns in the game, leaped from just inside the 5 and landed just beyond the front edge of the end zone for the tying score.When we needed to establish some momentum, we did. The offense got it back and got rolling. The offense kept us alive, Mason said.The Hilltoppers built a 14-0 lead in the first half, getting a 4-yard run from Anthony Wales to cap the opening drive of the game. WKU added a second-quarter score when backup quarterback Tyler Ferguson hit Nacarius Fant on a 61-yard pass play.Webb capped touchdown drives for Vanderbilt of 4 and 2 yards to tie the game briefly at 14-14.Wales put the Hilltoppers back in front with a 20-yard touchdown and the teams traded fourth-quarter field goals before the Commodores game-tying drive.THE TAKEAWAYWESTERN KENTUCKY: The Hilltoppers dominated the game on the stat sheet, putting up 501 yards of total offense. Running back Anthony Wales gained 157 yards on 24 carries and scored two touchdowns. The Hilltoppers also completed 24 of 40 passes for 291 yards. However, Western Kentucky was penalized 11 times for 88 yards and also had a pass intercepted and lost two fumbles. WKU was just 3 of 12 on third-down conversions in the game.VANDERBILT: The Commodores havent exactly been known for their passing, entering the game with just 376 yards through the air in three previous games. But quarterback Kyle Shurmur starred in the fourth-quarter and the overtime period. Shurmur was just 10 of 17 for 124 yards and an interception through the first three quarters. But in the fourth quarter and overtime, he was 8 of 12 for 155 yards and a touchdown in overtime. Shurmur took the Commodores 75 yards in seven plays with 1:02 left and no timeouts to tie the game and force OT.TURNAROUNDOn the first series of the game, Western Kentucky drove downfield from its own 25 to the Vanderbilt 4, when a swing pass was batted and ruled a lateral. Vanderbilts Taurean Ferguson returned it 91 yards for a touchdown. Replay reversed the call, and the Hilltoppers scored on the next play when Anthony Wales got into the end zone from four yards out.QUICK TRIGGERKentucky Governor Matt Bevin sent out a premature tweet on the game that said Congrats to (at)WKU football on a solid win over (at)VandyFootball...Off to another great start to the season...Well done! (hash)WeAreKY.The tweet was quickly deleted.BIG CROWDSaturdays game was the first time ever for a Southeastern Conference team to play at Western Kentucky and it turned out to be a historic event. The announced crowd of 23,674 set a new school record for attendance for Western Kentucky football.WORLDWIDE WEBBRalph Webb provided a big chunk of Vanderbilts offense, running 20 times for 95 of the Commodores 110 rushing yards in the game. That included a 38-yard run and all three of Vandebilts touchdowns in regulation. Webb reached the end zone from four yards out in the second quarter, from two yards away in the third quarter and again from two yards on the final play of regulation.MAKING IT COUNTVanderbilt receiver Caleb Scott had just one catch in the game, but it was good for 66 yards and set up a fourth-quarter field goal for the Commodores. Scotts catch allowed him to tie C.J. Duncan, who had five catches, as the Commodores leading receiver yardage-wise.UP NEXTVANDERBILT: The Commodores return home and to SEC action as the Florida Gators visit on Oct. 1.WESTERN KENTUCKY: The Hilltoppers are at home for the second consecutive week, hosting Houston Baptist on Oct. 1. Marco Estrada Jersey . Sgt. Eric ONeal says most of the arrests at Monday nights game were for public drunkenness, though one person was taken into custody on suspicion of trying to steal a seat from the stadium. Dalton Pompey Jersey .ca! Hi Kerry, Heres an interesting one. I know its common knowledge that all players are responsible for their sticks. We witnessed that when Zack Kassian hit Edmontons Sam Gagner in the face after a missed check. http://www.cheapbluejaysjerseys.com/?tag=cheap-kevin-pillar-jersey . LOUIS -- Mike Smith is used to facing plenty of shots, so this was nothing new. Cheap Blue Jays Jerseys China . The judges scored it 48-47, 48-47, 49-46 for Jones (19-1). It was the champions closest call. Despite the loss, it was a remarkable show by the confident Swedish challenger, who had the best of the early rounds and then hung on in the fourth and fifth. Cheap MLB Jerseys . The FA rejected Wilsheres appeal that the length of his punishment was "clearly excessive" and said Thursday his suspension begins with immediate effect. He will miss league matches against Chelsea on Monday and West Ham on Dec. LAWRENCE, Kan. -- Texas coach Charlie Strong walked slowly off the turf at Memorial Stadium, swimming upstream against thousands of Kansas fans trying to join the jubilant celebration at midfield.His wife was weeping outside the Longhorns locker room.His boss walked by with nothing to say.The Longhorns 24-21 overtime loss to lowly Kansas on Saturday may have been the final blow to Strongs fragile tenure in Austin. Even if he coaches in next weeks regular-season finale against TCU, few believe he will be given another year to turn around his fortunes.Asked whether he knew what the loss meant, Strong replied: No, I dont. No idea.He refused to say much more. His players were just as silent.I love Coach Strong. Thats my dog, Longhorns safety DeShon Elliott said. I love him, but like I said, thats not our decision. We cant make that decision. Its the AD and all the men up there.Texas athletic director Mike Perrin, who said earlier this season that he will evaluate Strong only after the finale, looked away and did not stop to speak to reporters after the game.Strong is in the third year of a five-year contract, but not even a $10 million buyout could be enough to save him. He has failed to take the program to the same heights he took Louisville, going 16-20 overall, and is in danger of finishing with his third straight losing season.His only bowl appearance came in 2014, when he lost to Arkansas in the Texas Bowl.Youre upset. You never want this to happen, said Texas quarterback Shane Buechele, who threw an interception on the first possession of overtime that allowed Kansas to kick the winning field goal.You have to get everyone to rally back. Were a family in there, Buechele said, before adding oof Strong: Were going to fight for him this next game.ddddddddddddThe Longhorns (5-6, 3-5) have shown some fight this season, beating Notre Dame in double overtime to open the season, ever-so-briefly giving Strong a reprieve from all the critics.But close losses at California, Oklahoma State and in the Red River Rivalry against Oklahoma put an end to any fuzzy feelings. Another close loss to Kansas State a couple of weeks later combined with last weeks 24-20 loss to West Virginia put his job in peril.Nothing could be more damaging than a loss to the Jayhawks, though.Kansas hadnt beaten a Football Bowl Subdivision school since 2014, and hadnt won a conference game in 19 tries. The Jayhawks only win in nearly two seasons under coach David Beaty was against lower-level Rhode Island in the season opener, and the Longhorns had handled them in their last 13 meetings.Yet four turnovers in the second quarter got the Longhorns in trouble, and more missteps down the stretch allowed Kansas to overcome a 21-10 deficit and force overtime in the final seconds of regulation.Matthew Wymans 25-yard field goal sent Strong striding off the field.This one hurts, Texas wide receiver Jacore Warrick said. Everyone is disappointed. We wanted to come out. We wanted to play well. Ultimately, no matter what happens throughout the game, the end result, we want to be a W. And its not. We could have put the game away early.Asked about his coachs future, Warrick replied simply: Trying not to think about it.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 .
