The season began with a 42–0 loss at Mississippi State. The next week fared no better for the Commodores as they were beaten by Alabama, 32–7. In week three, Vanderbilt had its home opener, but to no avail, as the Commodores fell to Ole Miss, 30–6, and in week four, Vanderbilt lost a heartbreaker to TCU, 19–16 in overtime.
