Franklin: ‘Wear black and gold to work Aug. 30’

Wear your black and gold to work on Thursday, Aug. 30, in honor of the Dores’ first home game against South Carolina and National College Colors Day. The game will be nationally televised on ESPN, officially kicking off the SEC football season.

Vanderbilt fans attending the game should wear black for this exciting “blackout” event. Football players will dress in their all-black uniforms.

Encourage your co-workers and friends to show their team spirit on Aug. 30!
