The Vanderbilt Commodores are trying to get things turned around in the SEC over the next few years as they haven’t made a bowl game since 2013. They have a handful of tough opponents over the next few years and they just announced a meeting with a Big Ten school that has struggled the last decade as well.
The Commodores announced a home-and-home series with the Purdue Boilermakers, making future matchups for the first time since 1942. The two teams will meet in West Lafayette in 2019, but they won’t meet again until the Boilermakers go to Nashville in 2029.
Vanderbilt has now met its power conference scheduling requirement for every season but two over the next 14 years. Purdue has also met its requirement for the next 12 seasons, other than 2019 and 2022.
Derek Mason’s club also announced it would have future matchups with Georgia State. They will host the Panthers in 2025, but not before they play the Panthers in Atlanta, a rare case as Sun Belt teams usually travel to SEC teams for a big paycheck.
