Challenges for Vanderbilt

The challenge for Vandy against Ole Miss is that explosive, balanced offense of the Rebels. They are piling up over 500 yards a game on average. It’s pretty evenly distributed between passing plays and running plays so you can never be sure what is coming. Vanderbilt’s defense has to be able to slow down that offense and force some punts or the Rebels might put up video game points.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 6:30 PM CT (7:30 PM ET). You can watch this SEC football game on the SEC Network Network.
