Houston vs. Vanderbilt,

Score: 24 - 41
Point Spread: +3/-105 Houston
Today's winner is Houston over Vanderbilt.
Vanderbilt comes into this game starting Patton Robinette at QB. The RS freshman is 40-of-69, with 2 TD'S, and 3 INT'S. I don't feel the inexperienced play-caller will have much success against a Houston stop-unit that allows a mere 20.2 PPG and leads the nation with 40 takeaways. LB, Matthews and S, Stewart will wreak havoc on a Commodores offense that ranks 99th in Passing and 66th in Rushing. John O'Korn can throw the ball. The QB has a 59% CR, 2889 YP, and a 26/8 TD/INT ratio. The duo of Jackson and Farrow is the key here. The RB'S racked up 1141 YR and 11 TD'S. They will control the clock and allow O'Korn to hook up with standout WR'S, Greenberry and Spencer (1870 YR and 16 TD'S). The Cougars are 6-0 ATS their L6 non-Conference games, 5-2 ATS their L7 games played vs. the SEC, and 12-2 ATS their L14 games played overall. Take Houston. Thank you.
