NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Trent Sherfield set a Vanderbilt single-game record for receiving yards Saturday as the Commodores broke away from visiting Austin Peay for a 47-7 win.

Sherfield had 13 receptions for 240 yards - besting Earl Bennett, who had 223 yards against Richmond in 2007 - and a 26-yard third-quarter touchdown as Vanderbilt (1-2) built on a 19-7 halftime lead.

The Commodores, who had scored just nine first-half points in losses to Western Kentucky and No. 10 Georgia, shook off their early-game issues as Ralph Webb scored a pair of touchdowns and Tommy Openshaw added a 38-yard field goal -- his second of the game - all before intermission.

Vanderbilt extended its advantage with Webb's 2-yard run to open the second half, Sherfield's catch and a 17-yard Johnny McCrary run late in the third quarter. McCrary, who had thrown five interceptions in his first two starts, finished with 366 passing yards and another 42 rushing.
