One play Vanderbilt won't be scrapping is the option. Norman had a 51-yard run on an option pitch from Larry Smith in the third quarter last week, leading to a field goal. Zac Stacy fumbled an option pitch in the fourth quarter, though he recovered.
[Fullam] recorded a team-high (tied with linebacker Chris Marve) 12 tackles against Northwestern. He also forced two fumbles in the game and had one tackle for a loss of yardage. Against LSU, he had five tackles and snuck past the line to hurry quarterback Jordan Jefferson once.
Justin Maxwell's second-inning grand slam off rookie Mike Minor, a former Vanderbilt star, powered the Nationals to a 4-2 win over the Braves on Wednesday.
