Challenges for Vanderbilt
Vandy will be facing the top running in the nation Benny Snell Jr. Snell, a junior, has over 3,100 career rushing yards.The Commodores will also be facing one of the better defenses the SEC, one that features a 340 pound nose tackle, something Vandy doesn’t have.
Challenges for Kentucky
Saturday’s game kicks off 7:30 pm ET (6:30 CT) and can be seen on SEC Network.
Sure Vandy is again a bottom tier team in the SEC. However, they are likely going to surprise someone this season. The Commodores nearly beat Notre Dame in South Bend. A VU fumble (or mugging) on Notre Dame’s 1-yard line was the difference in that game. The Wildcats can’t afford to take Vanderbilt lightly.
