Vanderbilt quarterback Jordan Rodgers didn’t think he was on the verge of a career performance midway through Saturday night’s game with Ole Miss at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium. He was just 6-for-13 for 54 yards in the first half, while the Commodores totaled just 128 yards and a mere six points.
Rodgers’ finish, compared to the start, was much, much better as he ended up completing 14 of 22 passes for 213 yards and two touchdowns in the second half.
The younger brother of Green Bay Packers standout Aaron Rodgers gave credit to the Rebels’ defense for the way they played in the first half but in the end, it was all about Vanderbilt executing better that was the biggest difference in the second half turnaround. (November 12, 2012, Page 1B)
