The Vanderbilt Commodores went 9-4 last season, including a 4-4 mark in conference play that left them in fourth place in the SEC East. After the departure of James Franklin to Penn State, Vanderbilt welcomes in a new head coach in former Stanford defensive coordinator Derek Mason.

Redshirt sophomore quarterback Patton Robinette will lead the team on offense, while senior linebacker Kyle Woestmann will be a key presence on defense. The team also added two players this offseason who could contribute in 2014 in tight end Davis Dudchock and wide receiver Chandler Dorrell, both of whom followed Mason in coming from Stanford.
