Vanderbilt added an ACC opponent to its future football schedules Tuesday, the school announced.
The Commodores will take part in a home-and-home series with the ACC’s N.C. State Wolfpack. The two teams will square off in Nashville on Sept. 19, 2026, then play again in Raleigh, N.C., on Sept. 16, 2028. Vanderbilt has faced N.C. State twice in program history (2012 and 1946), winning both games.
Vanderbilt also revealed future matchups with FCS opponents East Tennessee State and Alabama A&M. The Commodores will host Alabama A&M on Sept. 9, 2017 and welcome ETSU at an undetermined date in 2019 and again on Sept. 4, 2021.
The Commodores open the 2016 season against South Carolina on Sept. 1.
