Vanderbilt (6-4, 3-4 SEC) will hit the road for an in-state showdown with Tennessee (4-6, 1-5) Saturday night at 6 p.m. CT at Neyland Stadium in Knoxville. The game will be televised on ESPN2.

The Commodores have played the Vols more than any other team. It is the SEC's fourth most frequently played rivalry. Vanderbilt's 41-18 victory last season ended a 14-game losing streak in games played in Nashville. Vanderbilt also controlled the early years between the universities, holding a 19-2-3 overall record through 1927.

The Commodores come into the contest holding a 13-4 record over their last 17 games. The 17-game stretch includes a seven-game streak to conclude the 2012 season and a victory in the Franklin American Mortgage Music City Bowl. It marks the SEC's third best record over that span. Only two SEC teams, Alabama and Texas A&M, own better records over their last 17 games than the Commodores.

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