What to Know
Vanderbilt is hoping to patch up the holes in a defense that has allowed an average of 36.83 points per game. Vanderbilt and Missouri will face off in an SEC battle at 4 p.m. ET on Saturday at Vanderbilt Stadium. The Commodores have some work to do to even out the 1-3 series between these two since 2015, but a win here would be a good start.
Pride goes before the fall, and it seems the Commodores saw their 15.5-point advantage in the point spread and came into their matchup against UNLV with a big head. Vanderbilt ended up on the wrong side of a painful 34-10 walloping at UNLV's hands last week. Vanderbilt's loss came about despite a quality game from RB Ke'Shawn Vaughn, who rushed for 140 yards and one TD on 15 carries.
Meanwhile, Missouri gave up the first points against Ole Miss, but they didn't let that get them down. Missouri came out on top against Ole Miss by a score of 38-27. Winning may never get old, but the Tigers sure are getting used to it with five in a row now.
Missouri's win lifted them to 5-1 while Vanderbilt's defeat dropped them down to 1-5. A couple defensive numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: The Commodores are sixth worst in the nation in yards allowed per game, with 482.7 on average. To make matters even worse for the Commodores, the Tigers come into the game boasting the fourth fewest passing yards allowed per game in the league at 154.7. So the cards are definitely stacked in Missouri's favor.
