Vanderbilt football long snapper Wesley Schelling scored a touchdown during Vanderbilt's matchup with Florida on Saturday.

After a Commodores three-and-out, punter Matt Hayball booted a kick 49 yards to the five-yard line. Gators punt returner Jason Marshall Jr. muffed the catch and the kick went into the end zone, where a scrum of players on both teams fought for the ball. Eventually, Schelling came up with it.

Vanderbilt (2-6, 1-5 SEC), which had previously scored a touchdown early in the second quarter on a pass from Mike Wright to Jayden McGowan, held Florida (6-4, 3-4) to just two field goals in the half. The Commodores went into halftime leading, 14-6, thanks to Schelling's touchdown play.

It's the second straight week Vanderbilt has gone into halftime with a lead. Last week, the Commodores led Kentucky at halftime and came away with their first SEC win in three years.
