Vanderbilt is coming off a subpar effort against Florida. It's likely that the 'Dores had a hangover after the shocking lopsided loss to Alabama. While most followers of the Commodore program weren't expecting a win, the final score (Bama) was something that few thought possible. Now the Commodores must re-group and get back on track after two straight losses. Georgia is very good but not unbeatable. Hopefully, the Commodores will address some issues during this week's practices. Furthermore, Vandy needs badly to get Tre Herndon back on the field. He ran down Nick Chubb a couple years ago in Nashville. Derek Mason said in his Florida postgame comments that Herndon would be back for Georgia. Hopefully, that is the case. The Commodores need his speed and experience on the field.
Saturday's game kicks off at 11 am CT and can be seen on ESPN.
