Vanderbilt vs. Ole Miss preview
By Sam Khan Jr.
The Vanderbilt Commodores look to make it four victories in a row for the first time in the James Franklin era when they enter the Grove to take on Mississippi today (7 p.m. ET, ESPNU). Vanderbilt is coming off a 40-0 pounding of Kentucky, and while it can't move up in the SEC East standings today, the Commodores (3-3 in the SEC) can get above .500 in league play.
They've performed well defensively, allowing just 316 yards per game (19th nationally). The Rebels are looking to bounce back after a 37-10 loss against Georgia. A win would get the Rebels (5-4. 2-3) back to .500 in SEC play. They get after the quarterback, averaging three sacks a game (tied for 11th nationally).
