Deacon Dump versus Vanderbilt

It is essentially do-or-die for the Deacs on Saturday versus Vanderbilt. As Riley said, there's a chance they qualify at 5-7, but the players must go into the game in Winston-Salem thinking "do-or-die." They face a 7-4 Commodores team who has won five straight games. They boast a great running back in Zac Stacy and tremendous receiver in Jordan Matthews and Jordan Rodgers at quarterback. Vandy also has a strong defense; it will be interesting to see how the Deacs offense ranked 117th out of 120 teams at 18.3 points per game fares against SEC speed.
