Challenges for Ole Miss

Vanderbilt has struggled for the most part his season but they have played two SEC teams with single digits this season. It could be easy to sleep on the Commodores. That wouldn’t be a good idea though. Vandy’s defense is among the top teams in the SEC for third down conversions defense. They intercept a lot of passes with several players with more than one pick. Vandy will probably start Mike Wright at QB. It’s a head scratcher why they would go with anyone else at this point in the season but that’s why they are sitting at the bottom of the SEC East. Wright brings some above average passing accuracy and also is a threat to take it to the house at any time.

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.
