COMMENTS

Since Vandy’s 2-0 start they’ve gone downhill. Losing to UNLV by a field goal was rock bottom for the Dores. The good news is that they looked improved in their recent game with Missouri. The Commodores will probably show more improvement on Saturday but most likely they lose in the Swamp.
