Comments

Vandy plays the last of a 3-game gauntlet to start the season. LSU marches into Nashville undefeated with the Tigers possibly the best team in America. Vandy was flagged for 150 yards of penalties at Purdue a couple weeks ago. The Commodores have had a bye week to clean some of that up. In short, Vandy is probably a lot better than they have appeared so far this season. The Dores have some good times ahead but those times won’t come this weekend. LSU wins this big.
