Vanderbilt-Tennessee Tickets Available; Nearly 25,000 Remain for State’s Big Game 11/14/02

Nashville, Tenn. - With sales lagging for the Vanderbilt-Tennessee football game on November 23 in the Nashville Coliseum, Commodore athletic officials are taking several steps to help promote the 96th meeting of the intrastate rivals.

The athletic department will partner with Comcast and a broad network of Tennessee radio and television stations to promote ticket sales, Vanderbilt Director of Marketing Owen Shull said.

“We are working with media outlets across the state so fans realize that good seats still remain. We expect an active week of ticket sales as we think this game sets up to be one of the most competitive in several years. Two years ago in the Coliseum, this game created a special atmosphere that was enjoyed and appreciated by the players and fans alike,” Shull said.

Almost 25,000 tickets remain available for the Commodore-Vol game as of Thursday, according to athletic department officials. In 2000, Vanderbilt dropped a 28-26 thriller before a capacity crowd in the Nashville Coliseum.

Both the Commodores and Volunteers are on the road playing Southeastern Conference opponents Saturday. Vanderbilt, 2-8 overall, travels to Lexington to play the 6-4 Kentucky Wildcats. Tennessee goes to Starkville for an encounter against Mississippi State.
