Vanderbilt returns to action in Week 0 with a home contest vs. Hawaii on Aug. 26 (7:30 p.m. EST/SEC Network).

Leading up to the regular season opener, the Commodores dropped a hype video for the showdown vs. the Rainbow Warriors.

This is the second season in a row that Vanderbilt opens up vs. Hawaii, after a 63-10 victory in 2022. Vanderbilt has posted a mark of 7-17 under head coach Clark Lea. The Commodores doubled their win total last season from Lea’s inaugural campaign.

Vanderbilt wide receiver Will Sheppard finished second in the SEC last season with 9 touchdown receptions.
