The Vanderbilt Commodores have finalized their 2014 non-conference football schedule, athletic director David Williams confirmed to The City Paper.
All four of Vanderbilt’s non-conference games will be played at Vanderbilt Stadium in Nashville. The 2014 season kicks off on Saturday, Aug. 30 with a visit from the Temple Owls of the American Athletic Conference.
Vanderbilt hosts UMass on Oct. 4, which is the third game in a four-game, home-and-home series that was agreed to back in 2011. The series is set to wrap up at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough on Sept. 8, 2018.
Old Dominion is the third non-conference game for the Commodores in 2014. The Monarchs, who visit on Nov. 1, will officially be a member of Conference USA next summer.
Vanderbilt closes the 2014 season on Nov. 29 against Wake Forest.
The 2014 SEC football schedule has yet to be released, but the Commodores know seven of their eight opponents. Vanderbilt will host Florida, South Carolina, and Tennessee and will travel to face Georgia, Missouri, Kentucky, and Ole Miss.
