CHALLENGES

If the Commodores want to go to a bowl, it's time to take a stand and get a win. Missouri sits at 5-5 after a string of victories. Derek Mason needs to put together a solid defensive plan like he did against Kansas State earlier in the season. He said before that game that he had watched every play in college that the quarterback Jesse Ertz had ever taken. Hopefully, Mason can prepare as well for the Tiger's fine quarterback Drew Lock who has been lighting up scoreboards all season. Andy Ludwig needs to burn some midnight oil too. Vandy will probably need to score over 30 points to win this game, even with a solid defensive performance by the 'Dores.

Saturday's game kicks off at 6:30 pm CT and can be seen on the SEC Network.
