Wow. Vanderbilt just beat Connecticut 24-21.
If you don't remember, Connecticut won the Big East last year and played Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl. They got destroyed, but a BCS bowl is an accomplishment nonetheless.
Vanderbilt blew out Elon 45-14, but that can be all but ignored.
I watched the Vanderbilt-Connecticut game, and I have to say that I was unimpressed by their three-quarterback offense. You know what they say: If you have three quarterbacks, you really have none.
Still, Vanderbilt has a solid defense, led by linebacker Chris Marve and cornerback Casey Hayward, and they'll be no slouches.
But good as they are, their defense isn't good enough to hold up Tennessee's passing game and their offense is terrible. They might figure out who they are offensively before they meet Tennessee, and if they do, they'll be a dangerous team, but I'm still confident Tennessee comes away with a win.
