COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Vanderbilt beat the Missouri Tigers 19-15 Saturday night.The Tigers record now stands at 3-3.

The Tigers took an early 6-0 lead and kept Vanderbilt from gaining a first down until nearly nine minutes into the second quarter. Missouri was forced to play without starting quarterback James Franklin for much of the game as he sprained his left knee on a first-quarter run and didn't return.

Tiger Coach Gary Pinkel said Franklin injured his medial collateral ligament and, "will be out for a few weeks," including a home game next weekend against No. 1 Alabama. Reserve running back and kick returner Marcus Murphy broke a finger in the first quarter and didn't return, and starting linebacker Will Ebner sat out with a hamstring injury.

Corbin Berkstresser took over for Franklin and had an 85-yard scoring pass to Bud Sasser that cut a Commodores' fourth-quarter lead to 16-15.
