It’s a huge SEC showdown on Saturday afternoon at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainesville, Florida between two teams who have high hopes for what this season can become.
The Vanderbilt Commodores will look to have a big bounce back game when they travel to take on the Florida Gators. The Gators have won the last three games played between the two teams.
The Vanderbilt Commodores had a really nice start to their season winning three straight games including a big upset over the Kansas State Wildcats.
People started to question if these Commodores were for real, but they found out pretty quick that they still had a long ways to go when the Alabama Crimson Tide came to town.
The defense couldn’t slow down the Crimson Tide offense, and the Commodores offense couldn’t get anything going and that led to a 59-0 defeat.
Things don’t get any easier when they make the trip to Gainesville, a place that has historically been a really tough place to play.
For the Commodores to have success in this game they need to get something going against the Gators on the offensive end, something that will probably be a pretty hard task.
The Gators defense is almost up to the par with the Crimson Tide, so if they couldn’t score any points against them, they are going to need to do something to change the game plan and get the offense rolling early.
On the other side of this match up is the Florida Gators who come into this game with a 2-1 record, but they could be easily 0-3 if they weren’t so good with closing out games.
Two weeks ago when they played the Tennessee Volunteers they used a walk off hail mary to win the game, and last week when they played Kentucky the Wildcats missed a field goal as time expired and the Gators escaped again.
They are playing fire though with all these close games, and if they keep it up, at one point they are going to lose the game.
To win this game the offense needs to step up and make big plays at key times. If the offense can do better, that won’t put as much pressure on the defense.

I think the Commodores will still be feeling the affects of the beat down they took at the hands of the Alabama Crimson Tide.

I think the Commodores will have issues against the Gators strong defense and that will cause some issue.
The Gators offense will struggle again, but they will do enough to come out ahead in this game.
