The Arkansas Razorbacks enter Saturday's game against the Vanderbilt Commodores in a distant second-place in the SEC West. Ahead of them are Alabama and LSU, two teams off this weekend before they clash on Nov. 5. They already lost to Alabama, but LSU awaits at the end of the season.
The Commodores should just be a stop on the road for them (12:21 pm ET, SEC Network; bounce here for Arkansas-Vandy score updates and here for college football updates from around the country).
Razorbacks quarterback Tyler Wilson has done a great job replacing Ryan Mallett, throwing for over 2,000 yards and 12 touchdown passes. The running game has been distributed to a number of backs as a result of Knile Davis' season-ending injury during the summer.
The Commodores, meanwhile, enter this game having snapped a three-game losing streak by defeating Army. Vandy fans are singing the praises of running back Zac Stacy, but it will take much more than Stacy for an upset to happen. Still, the Commodores have a solid defense, allowing just 21.6 points per game.
