Vanderbilt vs. LSU: How to watch online, live stream info, game time, TV channel
Vanderbilt is staring down a pretty large disadvantage in the point spread for Saturday's game. They will take on LSU at noon on Saturday at Vanderbilt Stadium after a week off. With a combined 1,102 yards in their previous games, we can expect a fast-paced contest.
Vanderbilt scored first but ultimately less often than Purdue in their matchup two weeks ago. The Commodores took a hard 42-24 fall against Purdue. Vanderbilt's defeat shouldn't obscure the performances of Chris Pierce, who caught three passes for 133 yards and one touchdown, and Riley Neal, who passed for 378 yards and two touchdowns. Neal didn't help his team much against Georgia three weeks ago, so this was a nice turnaround for him.
Meanwhile, when you finish with 333 more yards than your opponent like LSU did last week, a favorable outcome is almost sure to follow. They put a hurting on Northwestern State to the tune of 65-14. The contest was all but wrapped up at the end of the third, by which point LSU had established a 51-14 advantage.
LSU's victory lifted them to 3-0 while Vanderbilt's loss dropped them down to 0-2. Two offensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Vanderbilt is second worst in the nation in overall touchdowns, with only 3 on the season. On the other hand, the Tigers rank second in the league when it comes to passing yards per game, with 436.30 on average. So the cards are definitely stacked in their favor.

Vanderbilt (home) vs. No. 4 LSU (away)
Current Records: Vanderbilt 0-2-0; LSU 3-0-0
LSU has rolled through its early-season schedule, and now the No. 4 Tigers hit SEC play.
The Tigers' newfound offensive firepower has led them to an average of 55 points per game in their first three contests, the most recent a 65-14 drubbing of Northwestern State behind yet another excellent game from quarterback Joe Burrow -- an early Heisman contender.
"This is who we are as an offense," he said after LSU routed Northwestern State 65-14 on Saturday. "We are going to take our quick passes and our deep shots and that is going to continue to work well for us."
In the first three weeks of the college football season, attention has largely focused on Clemson and Alabama, with the former extending its winning record to 18 games and the latter looking like a team on a mission to reclaim the national title.
According to Oddschecker, LSU is a 23-point favorite and is 91/100 to win and cover the spread, while Vanderbilt is a 23/2 underdog. The over/under bar for total points scored is set at 62.5.
