The East Tennessee State Buccaneers and the Vanderbilt Commodores meet in week 13 college football action from Vanderbilt Stadium on Saturday.
The East Tennessee State Buccaneers will look to finish the season on a high note after snapping a six game losing streak with a 38-33 win over Mercer in their last outing. Tyler Riddell threw for 116 yards and a touchdown on 8 of 12 passing while Quay Holmes led the Bucs with 255 rushing yards and 3 touchdowns and Jacob Saylors added 80 rushing yards and a touchdown as well. Saylors also led the Buccaneers with 46 receiving yards while Keith Coffee added 42 receiving yards and a touchdown. Artevius Smith and Donovan Manuel each had an interception as well for the ETSU defense. As a team, East Tennessee State is averaging 21.9 points per game this season.
The Vanderbilt Commodores will look to finish on a high note after making it three losses in a row with a 38-14 loss to Kentucky in their last outing. Riley Neal threw for 74 yards and an interception on 10 of 19 passing while Ke’Shawn Vaughn led the ‘Dores with 58 rushing yards and a touchdown on 12 carries. Ben Bresnahan had a team-high 32 receiving yards while Kalija Lipscomb added a team-high 4 receptions in the losing effort. Dimitri Moore led the Commodores with 13 total tackles including 6 solo tackles in the losing effort. As a team, Vanderbilt is averaging 288.8 yards of total offense and 15 points per game while allowing 472.1 yards of total defense and 35.3 points per game against this season.
Normally I'd be against Vanderbilt as I just don't trust the Vanderbilt offense, but at home I think that Vandy's offense wakes up to prepare for the rivalry game with Tennessee on deck, so I'll lay the points with Vanderbilt here.
