ESPN for Opener

Vanderbilt’s season opener shifted from SEC Network

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Vanderbilt’s season opener against No. 3 Georgia has been shifted from the SEC Network to ESPN, the network announced Thursday.

The move comes with ESPN updating its television schedule for Week 1 due to Hurricane Dorian approaching the state of Florida. The announcing crew of Tom Hart, Jordan Rodgers and Cole Cubelic remain on the call for the matchup.

Vanderbilt is 80-45-4 all-time in season openers. The Commodores will be seeking their third straight victory in a season opener, with both wins coming against Middle Tennessee. This marks the ninth time in the last 10 years for the Commodores to open the season in Vanderbilt Stadium.
