Long before Saturday's 3:30 p.m. kickoff against Ole Miss, Vanderbilt football fans will have plenty of opportunities to get loud and anchor down.

The jam-packed lineup of festivities begins at 9 a.m., when fans are invited to attend a live broadcast of SEC Nation taking place at Lot T (next to the Shelby Street Pedestrian Bridge) at LP Field.

The show, which is similar to ESPN's popular College GameDay, will broadcast from 9-11 a.m., and will feature SEC Network personalities Paul Finebaum, Marcus Spears, Tim Tebow and Joe Tessitore. For more information on the show, click here.

Fans are also invited to come to Dore Alley -- which will be located at the corner of 2nd Avenue and Victory on South End of Stadium -- at 1 p.m. to cheer on the Commodores as they begin their pregame march to the stadium.

Throughout the day, fans can drop by Vandyville for tailgating activities. Vandyville will be located on the south side of the stadium, along Victory Lane. For a map of the layout, click here.

Here's a few other items to keep in mind on Saturday:

PARKING: The parking lots at LP Field will open at 7:30 a.m. Parking is $25 per vehicle, and passes can be purchased at each available parking-lot gate.
