NASHVILLE (AP) -

Jerron Seymour ran for a pair of first-half touchdowns to lead Vanderbilt to a 52-24 win over Alabama-Birmingham Saturday night.

Seymour started the game's scoring with a 7-yard touchdown run late in the first quarter. With just over nine minutes remaining in the second Seymour took a direct snap and ran for a 58-yard score on the only play of that drive.

Vanderbilt quarterback Austyn Carta-Samuels ran for a touchdown and threw for two more. He was 23-29 passing for a career high 334 yards.

Carta-Samuels' second touchdown pass went to Jordan Matthews, who tied a Vanderbilt record with his 21st career touchdown reception.

Ty Long had three field goals for the Blazers (1-3, 0-0 Conference USA) in the game.

Vanderbilt (3-2, 0-2 SEC) has won seven consecutive games against non-SEC opponents. They will play their next six games against conference foes.

UAB is 2-19 all-time against SEC opponents.
