COMMENTS

There's gonna be a Black and Gold brawl in Columbia this weekend. Mizzou claimed its first win over Vandy last year since joining the SEC. Despite losing their last two series the Tigers should be able to claim another win over nemesis Vandy.

Series Prediction


Vanderbilt 2 wins, Missouri 1 win.
