Until recently, Vanderbilt’s presence in bowl season hasn’t been as consistent as some of the other college football programs. The Commodores first appearance occurred in 1955, but the second didn’t come until nearly twenty years later in 1974. Vanderbilt made their third bowl appearance in 1982, but it took another 25 years before they were able to play their fourth bowl game. Since their 2008 bowl appearance, the Commodores have become a consistent bowl presence and the expectations has increased that the fan base believes Vanderbilt can make a bowl game every season.
In their bowl history, Vanderbilt has managed a few memorable bowl games, including their big victory over Auburn in the 1955 Gator Bowl on New Year’s Eve. Another memorable bowl victory occurred in the 2008 Music City Bowl against Boston College. The game was memorable because it was the Commodores first bowl appearance since 1982 and their first bowl victory since 1955.
Commodores fans are very love to travel to see their favorite team play and are always a force when Vandy makes a bowl game. Whether it be the Music City Bowl in Nashville, Tennessee or the Hall of Fame Bowl in Birmingham, Alabama in front of 75,000 fans, Vanderbilt faithful will be in attendance.
