Comments

Vanderbilt and Missouri are opposites. Opposites in both records and play on the field. Vandy is headed nowhere, at least in this season. The ‘Dores have some good players but their schemes are poorly designed. The Tigers could end up playing in a New Years or CFP game. The only positive advantage that the Commodores have on Missouri is that the Tigers are on probation and Vandy is not and that nixes the aforementioned bowl possibilities. This situation means there is actually one similarity. Barring miracles, neither team will go to a bowl in 2019.
