That awful Vandy D held an explosive Georgia offense to 221 TOTAL yards last week. They are 8th of 14 in the SEC in scoring def and 5th in total yds allowed. A&M is dead last in both main categories. That pitiful Aggie defense can't create enough space for the offense to cover 17.5 with a decent Vandy def.
All over Vandy here even with Redshirt QB. Guy is completing 65% passes on the year in limited play, not bad. Played just as effective in relief last week of starter Austin C-S. Even ran in a TD to start the 4th Qtr. 17-0 run to steal the win. Looks like the team responded to him well...also completed 60% in 15 throws. On the year he has 2 rushing TD's in a small amount of play time, so may add more of a run threat here.
A&M should move the ball and score well as the Vandy rush def is their weakness, although not awful...160 ypg to Aggies' 226. Vandy should score plenty also against the A&M hot butter def. One last thing, A&M not daunting at home, lost 2 there already this year. Dropped a game or more each year before for a while.
