Georgia and Vanderbilt will tee it up live from Nashville just after noon on ESPN. The Bulldogs come into this one a two touchdown favorite, ranked in the top five in the country, and playing their best football in years. Vandy just lost by 50+ to Alabama and by two touchdowns to a Florida team that had to switch quarterbacks mid-game due to injury. On paper this is a monumental mismatch.

No one ever won a college football game on paper. If the Red and Black avoid turnovers and penalties and "bring their own juice", this one should be over within three quarters. It’s a different sort of test, and I’m curious to see how Coach Smart’s team handles it.
