Gainesville, Fla. - Carson Fulmer put No. 18 Vanderbilt on his back Friday night in his home state, shutting out No. 4 Florida 3-0 at McKethan Stadium to even the series.

The Pokes from Stillwater are no pushovers in the conference after taking 2 of 3 from Texas last weekend to 31-13 overall and 13-5 in the conference.
