Auburn-Vanderbilt Prediction

Auburn swept Vanderbilt last season in Auburn, with a couple of the VU losses being by lopsided scores. This season Vandy looks a little stronger while Auburn seems to have regressed some. Vandy is the better hitting team. Both team have had issues in the pitching department but Vandy has the edge statistically. Prediction: Vanderbilt 2 wins, Auburn 1 win.
