AU-Vandy To Be On ESPN

The Auburn-Vanderbilt game will be broadcast on national television.

Auburn, Ala.--For the fourth consecutive week the Auburn Tigers (3-1) will play on national television as the SEC announced on Monday that the Oct. 4 game at Vanderbilt (4-0) will be shown nationally on ESPN. The game is set for a 5 p.m. CDT start.

Auburn will face Tennessee this weekend at 2:30 p.m. on CBS after having consecutive games against Mississippi State and LSU on ESPN2 and ESPN respectively.

Vanderbilt is off this coming weekend and will enter the contest with a 4-0 record for the first time since the 2005 season after defeating Ole Miss on the road Saturday. The Commodores's last 5-0 start came way back in 1943 in a season when Vandy played just five total games. Vanderbilt is looking for a winning season and a bowl bid, something that hasn't happened since 1982. Overall the Commodores have had just nine winning seasons since 1950.

Overall Auburn leads the series with Vandy 20-19-1 but has won each of the last 13 meetings. Vanderbilt's last victory over the Tigers came in 1955.
