AUBURN, Ala. -
The Auburn football game against Vanderbilt at Vanderbilt Stadium on Oct. 4 will be televised nationally by ESPN. Kickoff is slated for 5 p.m. CT.
It will mark Auburn's fourth straight nationally-televised game, and third on one of the ESPN networks. Auburn's game at Mississippi State was on ESPN2, and the Tigers' contest against LSU was on ESPN.
Auburn has won the last 13 games in the series, including the last six at Nashville, dating back to a 1955 Vanderbilt victory in the Gator Bowl. But the Commodores are 4-0 and 2-0 in the SEC entering a bye this weekend, and are nationally ranked for the first time since the 1984 season, with a No. 21 ranking in the Associated Press Poll and the No. 25 spot in the USA Today Coaches Poll.
No. 15 Auburn (3-1, 1-1 SEC) will host Tennessee (1-2, 0-1 SEC) this Saturday at 2:30 p.m. CT in a game that will be televised by CBS.
