Challenges for Tennessee

Vanderbilt’s struggled throughout the season but they’ve slowly shown improvement. Most recently they gave Ole Miss a tough game in Oxford. The play of Mike Wright has made a difference for the Commodores. He’s a dual-threat quarterback who is not just fast, he’s also very quick. Wright initially saw little action but has steadily become a mainstay for the Commodores as Ken Seals has struggled with the new Vandy offense. In nine games he’s passed for 844 yards and seven touchdowns and ran for 366 yards. The Vols can’t afford to sleep on Vandy.

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.
