NASHVILLE, Tenn. – No. 10 Tennessee will look to conclude its regular season on a high note when it travels to the midstate for a rivalry game against Vanderbilt at FirstBank Stadium in Nashville on Saturday night.

The Vols will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing loss on the road at South Carolina last Saturday and knock of a confident Commodores team that is coming off back-to-back SEC wins for the first time since 2018.


Saturday’s in-state showdown will be televised on the SEC Network as Tom Hart (PxP), Jordan Rodgers (analyst) and Cole Cubelic (sideline analyst) will have the call. Kickoff is slated for 7:30 p.m. ET.

Fans can listen to Tennessee’s official radio broadcast on the Vol Network (Local: WIVK-FM 107.7/WNML-FM 99.1) over 64 stations across the state of Tennessee and the southeast, SiriusXM (Ch. 81) and the SiriusXM app (Ch. 81), as well as the Varsity App. A live audio stream of the broadcast will also be available on​ and the Tennessee Athletics App.

Bob Kesling (PxP), Pat Ryan (analyst) and Brent Hubbs (analyst) will call the action, with VFL Jayson Swain handling sideline duties for the Vol Network radio broadcast. The Big Orange Countdown pregame show begins at 5:30 p.m. ET.

Vanderbilt, on the other hand, will be looking to secure bowl eligibility for the first time since 2018. The Commodores enter the contest at 5-6 following back-to-back upset victories over Kentucky and Florida.
