Game 5: Vanderbilt Commodores at Florida Gators -- Open GameThread

The Commodores are a 9-point underdog in the Swamp on Saturday morning.

It's that time.

In each of the last two years, Vanderbilt has played Florida in a game that (a) kicked off at 11 AM and (b) has ended with the two teams failing to score 20 points, combined. This year will probably be no different: Vanderbilt's defense has allowed 13 points in three games against teams not named Alabama, and Florida's offense has scored six touchdowns all season, one of which came on a Hail Mary and two of which came solely due to defensive incompetence.

While it's probably too early to drink heavily (ha!), we should always point out that weird stuff involving Vanderbilt almost always happens before noon. And we need some weird stuff to happen: Florida leads the all-time series 38-10-2 and has won 25 of 26 since 1989. The one Vanderbilt win came in the Swamp in 2013 in, you guessed it, a nooner.

Let's win this one. This one will be broadcast on ESPN and can be streamed on the WatchESPN app. Audio is available on the Vanderbilt IMG Sports Network.
