As of Sunday, 708 days had passed since the last time Vanderbilt was favored against a Power 5 team — dating back to Nov. 30, 2013, against Wake Forest. The last time Vanderbilt was favored against an SEC team was Nov. 16, 2013, against Kentucky.
Perhaps Vanderbilt has Kentucky’s number, because now, nearly two years later, the Commodores are the favorite again. VegasInsider.com has Vanderbilt as the 2.5-point favorite this weekend.
Both looking to regain some traction, the Commodores and Wildcats will square off at Vanderbilt Stadium on Saturday. Kickoff is at 4 p.m. ET and the game will be broadcast on the SEC Network.
