Challenges for Vanderbilt

Vanderbilt’s challenge is to defeat at least one SEC opponent during the 2022 season. The Commodores have already improved their overall number of wins by one victory over 2021. Missouri isn’t a Georgia or Alabama but they are a solid football team. They led Georgia for most of the second half in their game with the No. 1 ranked Bulldogs. Quarterback Brady Cook is a player the Commodores will need to keep in check if they want to earn that elusive SEC victory. Cook has 110 completions in 170 attempts for 1,212 yards, five touchdowns, and six interceptions. In his most recent outing, a loss to Florida, he threw for 220 yards and two interceptions with no touchdowns against the Gators.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 3:00 PM CT (4:00 PM ET). Watch this SEC football game on the SEC Network.
