Vanderbilt began playing football in 1890, and saw a good deal of early success, including two national championships and 11 conference championships in the Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Association. Vanderbilt was at the height of its success when it helped found the SEC. Unfortunately the Commodores would never win another conference title, and would begin a steady decline that, other than a few highlights in the 1970's and '80s, would continue through to today. This hasn't kept Vandy from sending some terrific players to the NFL, including Jay Cutler, Hunter Hillenmeyer, and Todd Yoder.

2016 Vanderbilt Season Preview
The Vanderbilt Commodores were able to take a step in the right direction last season with a sub-par 4-8 season under the leadership of second-year coach, Derek Mason. Coming into 2016, the season looks promising with 12 starters returning to the Vanderbilt football team. The offense will lean on running back Ralph Webb, while the defense will be anchored by linebacker Zach Cunningham. Vanderbilt has had come problems filling the wide receiver position strongly the last two seasons, hopefully, this will change in 2016 with returning player C.J. Duncan who was out for an injury last season. The Commodores will be striving for a return to a bowl game in 2016, if they accomplish this it would be the first time since 2013.
