The Vanderbilt Commodores will open the 2013 season with a trip to Ohio State, the Buckeyes announced yesterday. The game will be played on August 31, 2013.
Ohio State leads the all-time series against Vanderbilt 3-1. The last meeting between the two schools was in 1933, a 20-0 victory for the Buckeyes in Columbus. The Commodores’ only victory was 26-21 in 1931, also in Columbus.
Vandy is also slated to host Austin Peay, Northwestern and Wake Forest in 2013. The SEC has yet to release the conference schedule beyond 2011.
The Buckeyes have a trip to California scheduled in 2013 and still need two more non-conference games. The Big Ten portion of their schedule was confirmed yesterday, and includes Iowa, Penn State and Wisconsin at home and Michigan on the road.
