Vanderbilt found a Power Five opponent for 2019 and beyond - and they'll look familiar despite not having played them since 1942. The Commodores will face off with black and gold Big Ten foe Purdue for multiple games in the future.
Per AD Morgan Burke, #Purdue and Vanderbilt have a tentative agreement to play in football. 1st game in 2019— mike carmin (@carminjc) May 14, 2015
Purdue has been in a rut since longtime coach Joe Tiller retired in 2008. Since then, the Boilermakers have gone 26-47 and made the postseason just twice.
