Next week we will provide details on the virtual programming you can access during our home football games, including a virtual tailgate and live pregame show starting with our home opener on Oct. 3 against LSU.

Vanderbilt soccer earned the United Soccer Coaches’ team academic award, because of course we did. John Augenstein is on the Haskins Award watch list, and Auston Kim is on the ANNIKA Award watch list.

Oh, and the Pac-12 has joined the “playing football this season” bandwagon.
