Tennessee-Vanderbilt Prediction

Arch rivals Vanderbilt and Tennessee meet this weekend in Nashville. Tennessee looks improved the only question is how improved are the Vols? We really don’t know yet because they haven’t been tested. Vandy provides the Vols with a chance to prove they are for real this weekend. Tennessee may have the better pitching but the Commodores have solid arms and are strong on offense (they scored 37 runs last week). Tennessee could win this series but give Vandy the edge playing in Nashville. Vanderbilt 2 wins, Tennessee 1 win.
