One thing everybody can feel good about: either the Tennessee Volunteers or Vanderbilt Commodores is guaranteed to finish this season, in which both schools lost their head coaches unexpectedly, with two SEC wins. Each school’s other win being over the Mississippi Rebels tempers the celebration somewhat, but Saturday night we pop [whatever alcohol Tennessee and Vandy people can agree on — any ideas?] bottles.
Vols QB Tyler Bray has thrown for 675 yards and eight touchdowns in Tennessee’s last two games, and Vandy is tied for 95th in the nation in pass defense. The other team ranked 95th? Ole Miss, one of the teams Bray just lit up. Not to get ahead of ourselves, but Tennessee gets the Kentucky Wildcats at home next week. Provided they get past the Dores, a win there would make them bowl eligible, believe it or not.
