On this week’s episode of the Hustler Sports 30, Simon Gibbs, Alyssa Muir, Betsy Goodfriend and Justin Hershey discuss an apparent COVID-19 outbreak in the SEC, which led to four games being cancelled. Vanderbilt football’s game appears safe—at least, for now—so the hosts break down the Commodores’ latest loss and preview their matchup against Kentucky. Finally, they move on to Vanderbilt soccer, the first Vanderbilt program to head to the postseason in the fall of 2020.
