Missouri-Vanderbilt Series Prediction

Missouri has actually looked fairly solid during the non-conference portion of their schedule. They’ve got some solid pitchers and return veteran infielder Josh Day. Will they win a series at Vanderbilt? Probably not but they could steal a game and make it interesting.

Vanderbilt 2 wins, Missouri 1 win
