More than 5,000 Vanderbilt alumni and friends traveled from destinations around the country for an unforgettable weekend centered on the Vanderbilt vs. Notre Dame football game Sept. 15 in South Bend, Indiana.

The festivities began when 400 fans took in a Friday afternoon Chicago Cubs game at Wrigley Field, and continued Saturday with a spirited tailgate attended by 1,200 Commodores who then cheered Vanderbilt on to a near upset (ultimately losing 22–17) against Notre Dame.
