Seriously, what to do with a game between two teams that are a combined 0-14 in SEC play? Televise it on the SEC Alternate to the Alternate to the Alternate Channel? Issue a parental warning before the broadcast? Relegate the loser to the Southern Conference? (And, by extension: Welcome to the big time, Wofford!) This is a brutal matchup between two teams that were expected to fare much, much better. One can’t score, one can’t stop anyone. But somebody has to win — so make it Tennessee, behind some kind of Ball State-era Brady Hoke magic, finally getting some points on the board against a Vanderbilt defense that’s been a sieve all season. And then let’s all run over to Calhoun’s to see if Jon Gruden is chowing down on a half-rack.
Kickoff: Saturday, 4 p.m., SEC Network
Line: Tennessee by 1
Prediction: Tennessee 17, Vanderbilt 14
Which side will finish 0-8 in the SEC? Such a scenario was unfathomable in mid-September, when Vandy was 3-0 and fresh off a win against No. 18 Kansas State, while Tennessee was one well-defended Hail Mary away from being 3-0, too. Since then, the teams have gone a combined 3-13. Butch Jones is gone. Derek Mason is answering questions about his job.
One of these teams is trending (ever-so-slightly) upward, and that’s the Vols. Backup-turned-starter-turned-backup-turned-starter Jarrett Guarantano had his best game of the season against LSU, and the Vols avoided embarrassment in a 30-10 loss. That’s more than the Commodores can say; Mason’s team fell behind Missouri 35-0 in an eventual 45-17 loss, continuing a troubling trend of … being awful on both sides of the football. Count on the Vols to once again play the older brother in this rivalry and keep the ‘Dores at the bottom of the East standings. The pick: Tennessee
