Challenges for Vanderbilt
Vanderbilt’s challenge is to improve on its horrendous pass defense this weekend. The Commodores are 130th nationally in pass efficiency defense out of 131 teams. Kentucky has a quarterback named Will Levis who is projected to be an early-round draft pick in the upcoming NFL draft. The Vanderbilt defensive coaches have to figure out how to get some pressure on Levis and how to defend the Kentucky receivers.
Saturday‘s game kicks off at 11:00 AM CT (12:00 PM ET). Watch this SEC football game on the SEC Network.
