Challenges for Vanderbilt

Quarterback Hendon Hooker is out for this game, which is tragic for this young man. In his place, Joe Milton III will play. Milton III is no slouch as a QB. He played three seasons at Michigan before transferring to Tennessee. This season he has 33 attempts for 23 completions for 573 yards and six touchdowns. For his career, while completing 57 percent of his passes, he has thrown for 2,142 yards for 13 touchdowns and six interceptions.
