Comments

This looks like a mismatch of gigantic proportions but while Florida’s offense is very good its defense isn’t. Vandy sitting at 0-6 hasn’t looked very good but consider that Vandy has played half of its opponents to within a touchdown. The Commodores also seem to have improved a little over the past couple weeks. That said, this still should be a Florida rout. However, Vandy will probably score around 20 points or so. I think Florida will show up a little flat but they will win by about 24.
