As you know, Vanderbilt is 4-0. But did you know — or remember — that the Commodores have been underdogs in three of those games.

Sure, they were outmanned, at least on paper, against South Carolina and Ole Miss. But what in the name of Cornelius Vanderbilt were the Commodores doing as underdogs in their season opener at Miami of Ohio?

That game was a blowout, and the rest is history.

Expect the Commodores to be underdogs in their games against Georgia in Athens, Florida and Tennessee in Nashville and Wake Forest in Winston-Salem, and maybe even Kentucky in Lexington. I'm assuming they'll be favored against Miss State in Starkville and Duke in Nashville, but you never know.

So there's a chance Vanderbilt could be the underdog in eight games this season.
