Challenges for Vanderbilt

In their last game, Georgia quarterback JT Daniels connected on 23 of 31 passes for 303 and three touchdowns. If he is shaky the Dawgs have Stetson Bennett who passed for like a million yards and a hundred touchdowns in UGA’s win over UAB. Seriously though, he passed for five touchdowns in the first half against a pretty scrappy UAB team. Vandy’s got to figure out something to avoid getting blown out of their own stadium.

If Vandy is to win this one they have to play better on both sides of the ball. They also need to implement a little trickery and hope that the Bulldogs sleepwalk into Nashville.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 11:00 AM CT (12:00 PM ET). You can watch this SEC football game on the SEC Network.
