No woman had previously appeared in a Southeastern Conference football game or for any Power 5 gridiron team. Only two others – Katie Hnida for New Mexico and April Goss for Kent State – have ever appeared in a Football Bowl Subdivision contest.
During the game she wore a helmet written “Play Like A Girl” which was meant to encourage young women to get involved in athletics and to become aware of a science, technology, engineering and mathematics camp scheduled for March in Nashville. She also wore No. 32 for the Vanderbilt women’s soccer team.
She kicked off to start the second half of Vanderbilt’s game against Missouri. Her kick traveled 30 yards. The winless Commodores had yet to give her a chance at a field goal or extra point after being shut out in the first half by mediocre Missouri.
