Challenges for Vanderbilt

Vanderbilt’s challenge is to get a little better this week in all aspects of the game. The Commodores are way behind the rest of the SEC in just about everything. The running game, in particular, has to get better. In last week’s 45-6 loss to Mississippi State Vandy was limited to just nine yards rushing for the game. Mizzou’s defense is very poor so if the Commodores can light up the scoreboard they have a shot at gaining their first SEC win since 2019.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 2:00 PM CT (3:00 PM ET). You can watch this SEC football game on the SEC Network.
