Mark, leads Northwestern past Vanderbilt, 23-13

EVANSTON, Ill. (Associated Press) -

Venric Mark ran for 123 yards and a late touchdown, Tyler Scott forced a key fumble and Northwestern beat Vanderbilt 23-13 Saturday night.

Northwestern (2-0) didn't score a touchdown in the first three quarters but managed 17 points in the fourth to come away with another dramatic win after beating Syracuse 42-41 in the opener.

The Wildcats finally found the end zone when Mark ran it in from the 7 to give Northwestern a short-lived 13-10 lead with 9:28 left in the game. Vanderbilt's Zac Stacy then turned a short swing pass into a 55-yard gain that put the ball on the 14, but instead of a touchdown, the Commodores had to settle for a tying 26-yard field goal by Carey Spear.

Scott's forced fumble led to a recovery by Dean Lowry. That led to a 29-yard TD run by Kain Colter, sending Vanderbilt (0-2) to another difficult loss.
