The good news in this one is that one of these teams is going to improve to 1-2. The bad news is that one is going to drop to 0-3. I predicted Vandy to win this one in my preseason predictions. Yes, athletic LSU hammered them last game but I think Vandy is way overdue on win over the Gamecocks. This Vandy team does have some talent and the coordinators this season are much improved over what Vandy had last season. Vandy winning would be an upset though as the Gamecocks are two touchdown favorites. I’m sticking with the preseason score prediction on this one.
