The Vanderbilt Commodores look for their first SEC victory of the year after splitting their last four games. Johnny McCrary is completing 56.9 percent of his passes for 1,428 yards, six touchdowns and 10 interceptions. McCrary has thrown five picks in his last two games. Trent Sherfield and Steven Scheu have combined for 657 receiving yards and two touchdowns while Caleb Scott has 16 receptions. The Vanderbilt Commodores ground game is averaging 156.6 yards per contest, and Ralph Webb leads the way with 495 yards and three touchdowns. Defensively, Vandy is allowing 18.5 points and 338 yards per game. Zach Cunningham leads the Commodores with 47 tackles, Jahmel McIntosh has two interceptions and Adam Butler has two sacks. Nigel Bowden is questionable.
The Tigers are 12-3 ATS in their last 15 road games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Commodores are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall.
Missouri has one of the better defenses in the SEC, which should have its way with a Vanderbilt offense that has been very turnover prone the past couple of weeks. I also look for Lock to get back on track here with a solid game. The Missouri Tigers should win this game rather easily.
