Blackout promotion announced for Temple game
Aug. 12, 2014
Vanderbilt fans attending the season-opening game against Temple on August 28 are encouraged to wear black, as the Commodores look to blackout the stadium against the Owls. Vanderbilt will meet Temple at 8:15 p.m. in a game that will be part of a broadcast doubleheader on the new SEC Network.
"We think that this is a wonderful opportunity to unite our fans as we start the season," first-year Head Coach Derek Mason said, "I can't wait to look up into the stands and see the seats filled with Commodore fans wearing black."
In addition to the blackout promotion, the opening game will also feature the annual Anchor Dash, in which all members of the Vanderbilt freshman class help to lead the Commodores onto the field prior to the game.
Tickets for the game against Temple are available by contacting the Vanderbilt ticket office at 615-322-GOLD (4653) or online at vucommodores.com.
