Tailgates, rituals and attire: Vanderbilt University

Saturday, November 26, 2011 | 12:01 a.m. CST


Hometown: Nashville

Team: The Commodores

Colors: Black and gold

Tailgating: Vanderbilt's tailgating tradition is less extensive than that of other SEC schools. Party central is an area on the southwest side of the stadium called "Vandyville."

Jeff Lockridge, Vanderbilt beat reporter for The Tennessean, said the school's food and attire are low-key and casual.

Rituals: Head Coach James Franklin started a new tradition this year where the football team walks through Vandyville before the game.

Previous: University of Tennessee
