NCAA Football: Vanderbilt at Wake Forest Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Vanderbilt football is on the road for the second straight week — and in Las Vegas for the first time. The Commodores visit UNLV tonight at 6:00 PM CT (4 PM local time.) By my count, this is only the second game that Vanderbilt has played in the Pacific Time Zone, with a 1961 trip to UCLA being the other.
