Despite a promising start to the season last week, Vanderbilt fans don’t appear to be filling the stadium for the first home game of the season at Vanderbilt Stadium. Coach Derek Mason’s squad was one of the SEC teams that exceeded expectations in week 1, but alas, it doesn’t appear to have impacted the excitement levels back home.

Perhaps Vanderbilt should schedule its cupcake games as road games?

Update: Here’s what the crowd looks like after kickoff:
