Challenges for Missouri

Vanderbilt now has a losing record and has been outscored like heavily against four top-tier opponents including Wake Forest, Alabama, Ole Miss and Georgia. In its games against unranked opponents, Vandy is 3-0 winning all those games by double-digits. The Commodores have a very solid quarterback in AJ Swann. With just three starts under his belt, Swann, a true freshman, has over 950 yards passing for eight touchdowns with no interceptions. His quarterback rating is still 140 plus despite the shellackings at the hands of three teams that are contenders for CFP bids. Swann is a player that Mizzou must respect or they could be facing another SEC loss.

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