Commodore-Vol Game Coming
To Adelphia Coliseum Nov. 23 5/23/02
Tenn. - The 2002 Vanderbilt-Tennessee football game, scheduled
for Saturday, Nov. 23, will be played in Adelphia Coliseum,
Commodore Director of Athletics Todd Turner announced today.
It marks the second time for
Vanderbilt to host the Volunteers in Adelphia, the downtown
Nashville home of the Tennessee Titans. On Nov. 25, 2000,
the teams staged a classic in the rivalry, with the Volunteers
withstanding a furious Commodore rally to prevail 28-26. The
game, played before a capacity crowd of 68,360, featured the
largest home audience to ever see a Vanderbilt game.
“Our experience two years ago
at Adelphia was positive,” Turner said. “Our football team
enjoyed playing before the capacity crowd and the feedback
from our fans was quite good. We learned some things concerning
seat locations that will benefit Commodore fans this time.”
Commodore Head Coach Bobby Johnson,
in his first year at Vanderbilt, said the team is excited
about returning to Adelphia. “I’ve been told the game in 2000
provided a great atmosphere for college football. Our players
enjoyed the experience and are looking forward to returning
this year,” he said.
