Why Vanderbilt can cover
Vanderbilt was able to take an extra week to prepare for this game, as its bye week came after its road trip to Alabama. The Commodores are also returning home where they have won two of their three games at FirstBank Stadium this season. This is a trap game for Ole Miss, as it is coming off a huge win over Kentucky and has games against Auburn and LSU on deck.
Wide receiver Will Sheppard leads Vanderbilt with 26 receptions for 365 yards and seven touchdowns, emerging as one of the best wideouts in the conference. Head coach Clark Lea has had an extra week to come up with a plan to get Sheppard more touches on Saturday afternoon, which should result in a positive change. Vanderbilt has covered the spread in six of its last nine games, while Ole Miss has only covered twice in its last six contests.
Why Ole Miss can cover
Ole Miss has momentum coming into this game, as it picked up a crucial win over a top-10 Kentucky team last week. Running back Quinshon Judkins was named the SEC Co-Freshman of the Week after rushing for 106 yards and a touchdown in the win, while Micah Pettus earned SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week honors. The Rebels have been led by their strong defense, though, allowing an average of 11.8 points per game.
They have held nine of their last 10 opponents to 21 points or less, and they should have no problem achieving that goal again on Saturday against a Vanderbilt offense that cannot settle on a starting quarterback. Judkins has already racked up 535 rushing yards and six touchdowns, while Zach Evans has tallied 389 rushing yards and five scores. Plus, Vanderbilt has lost 20 consecutive games against SEC opponents.
