Challenges for Georgia
First off, you are probably wondering about Vanderbilt so we’ll give you are quick rundown. Vanderbilt finished the 2018 season with a 6-7 record. The Commodores played in the 2018 Texas Bowl, falling 45-38. Vandy returns 7 starters on offense and 5 starters on defense. Vanderbilt lost quarterback Kyle Shurmur to the NFL but gained a graduate transfer in Riley Neal who had over 7,000 career passing yards at Ball State and has been named to several watch lists. Vandy also has their top running back in Ke’Shawn Vaughn who is considered to be an NFL early-round draft prospect. The Dores also have a very fine tight end in Jared Pinkney who caught 50 passes a year ago and is also an NFL prospect. Senior WR Kalija Lipscomb was the leading receiver last season with 87 catches. Vandy’s biggest question mark on offense and maybe for the entire team is on the offensive line were 3 of 5 starters graduated.
The Commodore defense lost 1 of 3 linemen, 3 of 4 linebackers, and 3 of 4 defensive backs. The Commodore did bring in some graduate transfers to mitigate some of the losses. LB Dimitri Moore is perhaps the best defender for Vanderbilt. He had 84 tackles and a sack a year ago.
Georgia’s challenge for the game is just to play sound, clean football. If you execute your stuff and avoid sloppy mistakes like Florida and Miami both had in the recent opener for those teams, you should cruise to a win in Nashville. Don’t sleep on Vandy.
Saturday‘s game kicks off at 6:30 PM CT (7:30 PM ET). Watch on the SEC network.
