COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Vanderbilt’s Sarah Fuller became the first woman to participate in a Power 5 conference football game when she kicked off to start the second half against Missouri.
Fuller kicked off the turf with a holder rather than using a tee, and she sent a low kick to the 35-yard line where it was pounced on by Missouri’s Mason Pack.
Fuller didn’t get any opportunities in the first half as the Tigers opened a 21-0 lead over the Commodores.
Fuller, a senior goalkeeper on the Vanderbilt soccer team, joined the football team this week after helping the Commodores win the Southeastern Conference Tournament last weekend.
COVID-19 protocols and restrictions left Vandy football coach Derek Mason with a limited number of specialists available against Missouri.
