What to know
Vanderbilt Commodores have gone the wrong way in a one-sided rivalry with the Kentucky Wildcats and are hoping to score their first win since November 14, 2015. Vanderbilt will meet Great Britain at 7pm on Saturday at the Stadium. Vanderbilt action after a week off. Given that these two teams lost in their last game, both have a little more incentive to head into this one.
Commodores made a comeback against the Missouri Tigers two weeks ago, with a score of 37-28. A silver lining for Vanderbilt is the play of DB Mike Wright, who passed three TDs and 122 yards in 28 attempts along with picking up 152 yards on the ground. That nimble move stands out as Wright’s first time hitting the 100-meter dash this season.
Meanwhile, the UK entered their competition with the Tennessee Volunteers last week without any loss of home – but this is a first for everything. It was a tough game, but Great Britain suffered a 45-42 defeat to Tennessee. QB Will Levis Very good effort for the losing side as he went through three TDs and 369 yards in 49 attempts along with a dash for two TDs and 47 yards.
The British defensive unit accumulated four sacks to lose 15 yards. Led by LB JJ Weaver and his 2.5 sacks. Weaver currently has 6.5 sacks this season.
Commodores must know they will fight an uphill battle with the 21.50 point margin they are up against. Those who were lucky with them with odds two weeks ago may want to stop betting this time as the team has yet to string consecutive wins with the odds.
The losses put Vanderbilt at 2-7 and Great Britain at 6-3. A few stats to keep in mind as you watch: Vanderbilt is stumbling in the competition with the 233rd most interceptions nationally, after throwing 11 during the season. The UK has had the hardest time of all: they are 218th worst nationally in interceptions, having thrown ten during the season. Maybe one of these Achilles heels will get in the way of the losing team.
