Vanderbilt trolls Tennessee after Vols fall in Music City Bowl
Vanderbilt was the only SEC team to not reach bowl eligibility in 2021. That’s not stopping the Commodores from trolling their in-state rivals over a bowl loss.
Tennessee lost to Purdue 48-45 in Thursday night’s Music City Bowl, played in Nashville at Nissan Stadium, home of the Tennessee Titans. VU reminded UT of the teams that won games in Nashville this season with a postgame tweet.

Tennessee is on a 3-game winning streak in the rivalry with Vanderbilt. On Nov. 27, Josh Heupel’s squad got the better of Clark Lea and company in the battle of first-year head coaches, a 45-21 win for UT. The Vols won the 2020 game in Nashville 42-17.
Many Tennessee fans pointed out that Vanderbilt Athletics left off a team to win in Nashville: East Tennessee State. ETSU, an FCS program, defeated the Dores 23-3 at Vanderbilt Stadium in Week 1. Stanford, Georgia, Mississippi State, Missouri and Kentucky also won football games at Vanderbilt in 2021.
