This Week in College Football History: Sept. 12 - Sept. 18

September 12, 1981- Vanderbilt christened Vanderbilt Stadium with a 23-17 upset of Maryland in Nashville, Tenn. The 41,000-seat venue was constructed on top of previously existing Dudley Field, where the Commodores had played since 1922. Vanderbilt quarterback Whit Taylor, who passed for 259 yards and two touchdowns on the day, orchestrated an 86-yard scoring drive, capped with a five-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Phil Roach with 5:11 to play, to secure the victory.
