The Commodores may be disappointed after losing to the Gamecocks last weekend, but Homecoming is right around the corner. The boys will be back at home Saturday to take on Mizzou.
If the Commodores want to compete against the Tigers in the Battle of the Black and Gold, they’ll need to take care of the problems at quarterback, clean up the defense and commit fewer penalties.
Here are three things to know:
- Vanderbilt (2-4, 0-3 SEC) will take on No. 21 Houston on Oct. 31, and the SEC announced the kickoff time on Monday. Continue to be on the lookout for which channel will broadcast the Halloween matchup. It will air on either ESPN2 or ESPNU.
- Offensive coordinator Andy Ludwig patrolled the sideline this past Saturday instead of his usual station in the coach’s booth, according to Adam Sparks of The Tennessean. This also meant quarterback Johnny McCrary had to answer for his three interceptions with the coach face-to-face.
- A judge has pushed back the rape case trial involving two former Vanderbilt football players. It originally was set to take place on Nov. 30, but the new start date is projected for some time in spring of 2016. WSMV-TV in Nashville has more details.
