Vanderbilt began playing football in 1890, and saw a good deal of early success, including two national championships and 14 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.

2018 Vanderbilt Season Preview
Hmm, where do we start with Vanderbilt? Well, the running game is an obvious first. Ralph Webb is a heck of a runner, easily one of the best in the SEC. He is returning for his senior season, and at only 5-10, he was a 20 plus carry back who did not seem to tire. In a nutshell, a coach’s dream. Problem is, outside of Webb there isn’t much else in the Commodores roster. If you were to rank the team’s five top offensive players, the quarterback, a critical position, does not jump off the page. Kyle Shurmur only hit 55% of his targets, but if he can replicate that 416-yard afternoon he had against Tennessee for example, Vanderbilt fans will have something to hang their collective hats on. Alas, all signs point to at best a 7-win team, who with a bowl win could generate some smiles. But outside that, perhaps the basketball team will bring it this year for the Commodores. Whether you are planning on cheering on Vanderbilt at Vanderbilt Field or supporting the Commodores on the road, TicketCity has some of the best deals for all 2017 Vanderbilt Commodores tickets, including home and away games.

Vanderbilt vs. Ole Miss
Two of the founding members of the SEC, these two teams have played over 85 times since 1894. With similar sized student bodies and their close proximity to each other, these interstate rivals are very evenly matched and always produce one of the best games in the SEC. With both teams primed to make runs at the SEC elite, this game promises to have major conference implications to add to the already electric environment.
Vanderbilt vs. Tennessee
The bitterest intrastate rivalry in Tennessee is one of the best matchups that no one is talking about. Tennessee has dominated this series for a long time, but Vanderbilt faithful will tell you that many of the games have come down to the last drive. With Vanderbilt’s recent resurgence in recruiting and wins, this already hard-fought rivalry will be one not to miss.
Vanderbilt Commodores in the College Football Playoff, Bowl Games, and SEC Championship
This Nashville based University, the Vanderbilt Commodores, are the proud owners of 570 plus victories and 14 conference titles across the SIAA and the Southern Conference. Now apart of the SEC, they will look to add to their already illustrious bowl history, which features a healthy .643 record. Ticketcity offers tickets to all college football bowl games and the SEC Championship Game.
2016 Vanderbilt Football 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. Top games on the 2016 Vanderbilt Commodore schedule will be at home against Georgia, and on the road against rivals Ole Miss and Tennessee.
2015 Vanderbilt Football Preview
Derek Mason’s first season as Vanderbilt Commodores head football coach did not go as smoothly as many had hoped. Vandy struggled from start to finish, winning only 3 games, and erasing memories of back to back 9 win seasons. Part of Vanderbilt’s trouble a season ago was with inconsistency at the quarterback position. The Commodores saw 4 players have significant playing time at the quarterback position, with all but 1 throwing more interceptions than touchdowns. Vanderbilt enters 2015 with increased stability at the play calling position, with sophomore Wade Freebeck slated to start week 1. If Mason can get even slightly better play out of the Vandy quarterback in 2015, the young Commodores have a chance to double their win total from a season ago. Top games on the Vanderbilt Commodores 2015 football schedule are in Nashville against Georgia, Missouri, and Texas A&M.
2014 Vanderbilt Football Preview
After 2 consecutive 9 win seasons, and 3 consecutive trips to a bowl game, the energy around the Vanderbilt Commodores football team is as high as it has been in a decade. 2014 will be an important year for the Commodores, as it marks the first year of head coach Derek Mason’s tenure at Vandy. He brings with him a new 3-4 defense and a will to keep the Dores moving towards the top of the SEC. Key to this success will be Kyle Woestmann and Caleb Azubike, who anchor what will be one of the most dangerous defensive fronts in the SEC. Mason will turn the offensive side of the ball over to redshirt freshman Johnny McCrary, but will rely heavily on senior Kellen Williams and the running game. Exciting matchups on Vanderbilt’s 2014 football schedule are September 6th against Ole Miss, November 8th against Florida, and November 29th against in-state rival Tennessee.
2013 Vanderbilt Football Preview
In two seasons, James Franklin has already done things that have never been accomplished in program history. Franklin has changed the culture of Vanderbilt football and has led the Commodores to back-to-back bowl appearances for the first time in school history. In the tough SEC, Franklin has done an admirable job in a short period to make his presence known. The Commodores will look to build off the recent success by relying on a defense that finished 18th in the nation last season and held opponents to under 22 points per game. The offense will return eight starters to a unit that averaged 30 points per game. Franklin will need to find a starting quarterback and will have to replace the departed Zac Stacy in the running game, but Vanderbilt’s top two receivers in Jordan Matthews and Chris Boyd will be returning. James Franklin’s squad will have a great chance to make their presence known when Georgia travels to Nashville for a midseason conference showdown.
2011 Vanderbilt Football Preview
After a 2-10 year, there’s nowhere to go but up for Vandy. However, things are abuzz in Nashville after the arrival of new head coach James Franklin. In the Commodores, the former Maryland offensive coordinator will find the bones of the team that placed 112th in offense out of 120 teams in college football. Can Franklin’s pro-style offense help lift the doldrums of Vandy football?
A lot of that will depend on the incumbent signal caller, senior Larry Smith. Can he rise in the new offensive scheme, or will he continue to only show promise instead of performance on the field. If he can break through, it can only mean better things for junior running back Warren Norman. The former SEC Freshman-of-the-Year had an injury plagued 2010, and has been recovering from off-season wrist surgery that shelved him during spring practice. The coaches will be happy once he’s full speed to show what they can do overall on offense.
Defensively the most important piece will be new addition—defensive coordinator Bob Shoop, who commanded the defense for the winning subdivision school, William & Mary. The defensive line he inherits at Vanderbilt has 10 players he can swap out. The anchor of the unit may be senior end Tim Fugger, who was second in the SEC with four forced fumbles. However, it’s the secondary which may be the entire team’s strongest unit. If senior safety Sean Richardson and senior cornerback Casey Hayward can continue their impressive careers in Nashville, then the Commodores may be turning the page to find a happier story ahead.
2010 Vanderbilt Football Preview
Vanderbilt has long been in the basement of the SEC, making just one bowl game in the past 25 years. The Commodores did not do much to change that in 2009 after a dreadful 2-10 campaign. First- year coach Robbie Caldwell will have a tough time turning the tide this year with a difficult out-of- conference schedule.
Vanderbilt had a tough time scoring last year, as they ranked 113 in the nation in points per game with 16.3. That might improve a bit this year, as junior quarterback Larry Smith has another year's experience under his belt and receivers John Cole and Udom Umoh are both back. The biggest question mark is the lack of experience on the offensive line, where none of the starters from last year have returned.
The defense's strength will once again be its secondary. Last year, they ranked ninth in the nation in pass defense and the presence of juinors Casey Hayward and Sean Richardson will provide strong leadership. Junior Chris Marve will be solid at middle linebacker as well.
Vanderbilt has a tough start to their season with their first four games against Northwestern, LSU, Ole Miss and an upstart UConn team. While they certainly can improve on last year's result, a bowl appearance is unlikely.
2009 Vanderbilt Football Preview
The Vanderbilt Commodores should be a surprisingly good team in 2009. The Dores will be led by Head Coach Bobby Johnson and hope to string together some wins in the always tough SEC Conference. If Vandy can pull a few upsets then keep an eye on them to wind up playing in an important bowl game.
2008 Vanderbilt Football Preview
The Vanderbilt Commodores football program has been considered the underdog of the Southeastern Conference (SEC) since its creation in 1932. Vandy football players have also, however, shown themselves to be proud and unpredictable, beating #6 South Carolina and nearly upsetting #16 ranked Georgia on the road in 2007. Head coach Bobby Sanders has apparently found a home in Nashville and has made some unorthodox administrative changes in the athletic department in hopes to orchestrate a huge turnaround for the Commodores football program. Dudley Field at Vanderbilt Stadium will be a thrilling place to be this season as the Commodores try to climb the ranks of the SEC. There’s nothing more exciting than watching underdogs shock the nation by knocking off some of the great powerhouse teams in college football.
