Florida-Vanderbilt Prediction

Both these teams laid eggs in their conference series openers last weekend. At least neither one was swept. The good programs in the SEC rarely if ever get swept. Florida has owned Vandy the last few seasons but the Dores will be the favorite this weekend in Nashville. Vanderbilt 2 wins, Florida 1 win.
