Challenges for Vanderbilt

Vanderbilt, like many other FBS teams, suffered through a no-wins COVID season in 2020. The Commodores will have a new head coach on Saturday in former VU player Clark Lea. His team will face East Tennessee State in Saturday’s opening game.

ETSU is a solid FCS team. They finished the 2020 season with a 4-2 record. Quay Holmes, a running back, is ETSU’s top player. He averaged over 100 yards rushing per game last season.

Vanderbilt’s never lost a game to an FCS team. The Commodores need to take ETSU seriously in order to continue that trend.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 7:00 PM CT (8:00 PM ET). You can watch this SEC football game on the SEC Network + | ESPN+ Network.
