Anchor Drop, September 10, 2018: Soccer Makes It Seven

New, 20 comments

Also, football picks up a new commitment and women’s golf has a strong opening round.

NCAA Football: Nevada at Vanderbilt Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Vanderbilt soccer closed out its nonconference schedule with a 3-0 win over Georgia State on Sunday, extending their winning streak to seven games and improving their record on the season to 7-1. Grace Jackson, Haley Hopkins, and Olivia Simmons scored goals for the Commodores, who will open SEC play at Florida next Sunday.

Women’s golf was off to a good start yesterday at the Powerade Cougar Classic in Charleston, shooting eight under par before things were delayed by weather. They’ll pick up again today.

Football picked up a commitment on Sunday from cornerback Gabe Jeudy of Charlotte, who was previously a Rice commit. That makes 15 commitments in the 2019 recruiting class.

The Commodores opened as a 14-point underdog at Notre Dame on Saturday. Aside from being lower than we probably thought it would be in the preseason, let’s point out that in two games, Vanderbilt has outperformed the Vegas line by about 21 points each time... so, outperforming by that much again would give us a win. By the way, Vanderbilt is up to 23rd in the country in the latest S&P+ and also picked up three votes in the latest coaches’ poll. (For the record, both MTSU’s Rick Stockstill and Nevada’s Jay Norvell are coaches’ poll voters; Derek Mason is not.)
