Brothers to square off on Wednesday night

They are both 6-5 and they each wear number 20 proudly. Each calls Indianapolis home and each attended Bishop Chatard high school. Both play in the SEC but one wears Black and Gold and the other Crimson and White.

Dan and Greg Cage have a lot in common, in fact, they are brothers. Greg, a red shirt freshman walk-on at Alabama, is getting ready to face his older brother Dan, who starts for Vanderbilt.

Greg is looking forward to facing his brother, "It's a lot of fun. I'm looking forward to going up and seeing a lot of my family at the game. A lot of them haven't gotten the chance to see us play yet, so it'll be fun to finally have them get the chance to see us play and it'll be fun to get to play against my brother. I think the whole immediate family is going to be there, and then I think I have an aunt and uncle coming. My Grandma is going to be there. I don't know, I think they're all going to have to try and be neutral."

The younger Cage finds it strange to be playing against not only his brother but also the Commodores, who he normally is rooting for, "It's very different to have to play against your brother. I went to their game last week, and I was sitting there realizing I was rooting for them to do well, and I realized a week later I was going to have to be rooting against them. You know it's not just my brother: I'm close with a lot of his teammates. I know them from visiting Dan and a lot of them have come home to our house for Christmas and stuff like that. So it's different to have to be on the other side from them. But it's a lot of fun at the same time."

Who will win the battle of the brothers? We'll find out on Wednesday night at 7 p.m. CST when Vanderbilt hosts Alabama.
