Florida Gators vs Vanderbilt Commodores prediction

The Florida Gators are obviously the more talented team capable of blowing the doors off, but this line is hefty. The Vanderbilt Commodores somewhat competed with Florida in the first meeting this season and has won 2 of the last 3 meetings overall. Also, this is senior night for a Vanderbilt team that has 4 seniors. The Memorial Gymnasium should have a decent showing and the Vanderbilt Commodores should get up to go out with an honest effort. I'm sure Tyrin Lawrence would love to pull an upset to end his career with. I'll take the points with the Commodores.
