Show Me My Basketball Opponent: Eastern Kentucky

Here’s all I knew about Eastern Kentucky University heading into this post: Its football team is coached by former Tennessee special teams coach Mark Elder.

For over 100 years, Tennessee and Vanderbilt have transcended I-40 and played each other in football. Vanderbilt dominated the matchup in it’s formative years, wining 19 of the first 24 games.
