Vanderbilt (7-4, 4-4 SEC) will host ACC foe Wake Forest (4-7, 2-6) to close out the regular season Saturday at 11:21 a.m. CT at Vanderbilt Stadium. The game will be televised on SEC TV.

Fans are encouraged to arrive in their seats early Saturday to celebrate Senior Day activities. Twenty Commodores – a group that will play in three postseason bowls, will participate in the ceremony starting at 10:50 a.m.

The Commodores are 9-6 all-time against Wake Forest. Vanderbilt also is riding a two-game win streak over the Demon Deacons, both coming on the road in Winston-Salem. It marks the final game in the series that was renewed in the last decade.

Vanderbilt enters the regular season finale game seeking its ninth consecutive win in the month of November. The 'Dores under James Franklin are 9-2 in November games. In the decade before Franklin arrived, Vanderbilt was 3-32 in games played during November.

The Commodores also own a 14-4 record over their last 18 games. The 'Dores also are tied with Texas A&M for the SEC's second best record over that span. Only Alabama owns better records over their last 18 games than the Commodores.

With a win this Saturday against Wake Forest, the Commodores will register back-to-back eight-win regular seasons for the first time since America was in the midst of the Great Depression. Vanderbilt last achieved consecutive seasons of at least eight wins under Hall of Fame coach Dan McGugin in 1927-28.

To preview the game, Joe Fisher, Voice of the Commodores, talked with head coach James Franklin. WATCH
