Alabama football travels to Nashville to take on the Vanderbilt Commodores in an early-season SEC cross-division matchup.
Vanderbilt and Alabama meeting on the gridiron doesn’t usually bring up thoughts of a good game. In fact, it would more than likely drum up thoughts of a very one sided match. 2017 does not look like that type of game. Vanderbilt is hot off a huge win over Kansas State at home. Alabama looks to have some kinks in their armor, particularly on defense. This could be a very interesting matchup in Nashville.
As mentioned, Vanderbilt defeated 18th ranked Kansas State last Saturday. The Commodores showed that they have an elite SEC defense, as they shut down KSU quarterback Jesse Ertz and the rest of the offense, a team that had scored 55 points in back to back games, to only seven points.
Vanderbilt’s offense, while not putting up a lot of points in last weeks contest, looked efficient and took care of the ball. Quarterback Kyle Shurmur is leaps and bounds ahead of where he was last year. Shurmur will be crucial in the Commodores being able to pull off another upset this weekend.
Alabama faced Colorado State last Saturday in Tuscaloosa and as expected, won the game. But the Crimson Tide weren’t as strong on defense as they normally are. They allowed almost 400 yards of offense to CSU in the win.
