OUR PREDICTION: At one point this line was all the way up to 10 points, but it has settled in at nine. I think it's too many. Vanderbilt was waxed a week ago by Alabama but Derek Mason's team is reliant. Florida continues to have questions at quarterback, as Jim McElwain is going back to Luke Del Rio. The Commodores rank 32nd in the nation in total yards allowed, are second in passing yards allowed, and are 26th in points. Vandy will keep things close defensively.
