Vanderbilt Commodores (1-2) vs. Connecticut Huskies (2-2)

Saturday, October 2nd, 12:00 PM EST

Line: Connecticut -7

The Connecticut Huskies are a solid football team that has took some respectable losses in their first four games. They possess a true running game and a great receiving core. Their defense has been known to give up way to many yards, but that’s only one of the few dark sports in this team’s roster. Vandy on the other hand, have taken two early losses and have yet to find a prime source to their offensive game.

Keys to the Games

* Vanderbilt suffered an unexpected loss to Northwestern before getting abused by LSU the following week. They’ve recently recovered with a decent, 28-14, win over Mississippi two weeks ago. Now coming off their bye week, the team will look to rely on Warren Norman, who ran for 111 yards against Mississippi to prevent the team from going 0-3.

* Connecticut’s starting running back, Jordan Todman should be able to gear up for this weekends game against Vandy. If so, he’ll provide the offensive surge he’s been giving UConn in this young season. The junior running back, has 448 rushing yards and five touchdowns out 61 carries so far this season. He didn’t play in last weekend’s win against Buffalo, but has put up impressive numbers in his first three starts of the season, achieving 192 rushing yards against Temple prior to his injury.

* Connecticut is 26th in the league in rushing yards per game thanks to their depth. They expect to have their junior quarterback, Cody Endres come in for his first start of the season after throwing for 139 yards and two touchdowns  in only a half of play last week against Buffalo.

Vanderbilt is high off an small upset win against Ole Miss. They need to find more options on offense to have a chance Connecticut. The Huskies can run the ball and should be able to make the key plays in the red zone to win this game by more than a touchdown.
