Vanderbilt vs. Colorado State Football Series History

First meeting


Vanderbilt makes a rare trip to the Rockies. Hopefully, the Commodores got to town a couple of days early to acclimate to Colorado’s higher altitude, but don’t count on it. Vandy looked terrible in its opener with FCS East Tennessee last weekend. They were riddled with bonehead mistakes and costly penalties. Hopefully, for Vandy, they will have cleaned some things up for CSU. I think this may be a close game but I don’t see Vandy playing well enough to win this game. UConn will probably be their only win this season.
