Vanderbilt vs. UConn Football Series History
Vanderbilt leads 2-1
This will be a battle between two teams that are struggling mightily. The loser may not win (or win another game) this season. I think in UConn’s situation they have a couple of winnable games coming up. For Vanderbilt, which has eeked out a win, there are few winnable games remaining after the Huskies. This will be an interesting game to watch. We’ll see how good Clark Lea and his staff are at picking their players up off the ground after a demoralizing loss. Vandy should have the edge playing at home and with the confidence of having won a game.
