COLLEGE FOOTBALL FREE PICK: Vanderbilt has covered the spread in its last two meetings with Ole Miss and the Commodores are 11-2 ATS in its last 13 home games. Vanderbilt is coming off a strong 9-4 season in 2012 and head coach James Franklin seems to have the team heading in the right direction. Despite some questions on offense, the Vandy defense should be able to contain Ole Miss at home. Rebels quarterback Bo Wallace can put up big numbers, but he also turns the ball over. Look for the Vandy defense to come up with some big plays to lead the Commodores to, not just a cover, but a straight up victory.
