Vanderbilt football fans can’t wait for the 2014 season to come to a close so they can look forward to next year. The SEC released the team’s schedules today and Vandy will open the 2015 campaign at home against Western Kentucky on Sept. 5th.
The Commodores will resume their rivalry with MTSU and will play the Blue Raiders in Murfreesboro on October 3rd. Coach Mason’s team will have a rematch of the 2012 Compass Bowl when they play Houston on the road. Texas A&M will make their first trip to Nashville on November 21st and the team will head to Knoxville to finish the season against the Vols.
According to Derek Mason;
“We’re excited about the 2015 schedule. It presents a great challenge and great opportunity for our football team. Playing three teams from this area in Western Kentucky, Austin Peay and Middle Tennessee also should generate a lot of local interest among college football fans entering the season.”

They had so much fun playing earlier this year that the University of Houston and Vanderbilt have announced a non-conference home-and-home football series Thursday. The two-game series will begin Oct. 10, 2015, at TDECU Stadium in Houston with the second meeting occurring Oct. 2, 2021, at Vanderbilt Stadium in Nashville, Tenn.
The two programs met for the first time in the 2014 BBVA Compass Bowl in Birmingham, a 41-24 Vanderbilt victory.
According to Vanderbilt Director of Athletics David Williams
“We are pleased to join the University of Houston in making this scheduling announcement. We know from the excitement of the BBVA Compass Bowl that this should be a very competitive series. It will allows the Commodores to play on the road in front of one of Vanderbilt’s largest alumni bases. The team experienced tremendous alumni support on our last visit to Houston.”
Vandy will announce their 2015 schedule later this year but it’s believed that they will play MTSU in Murfreesboro to start the season then host Western Kentucky in week 2. The Commodores will play the SEC East schools: Florida, South Carolina, and Tennessee on the road. The Dores will get Georgia, Kentucky, and Missouri at home. They play their permanent SEC West rival Ole Miss in Oxford and get Texas A&M in Nashville. There will be one more game against a nonconference foe that hasn’t been announced yet.
