NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Vanderbilt Stadium will be called FirstBank Stadium starting this season under a new 10-year naming rights deal.

Athletic director Candice Lee calls the deal a historic collaboration.

Lee says Vanderbilt remains committed to its core mission as the landscape of collegiate athletics continues to shift.

The field itself will remain Dudley Field, the original name when Vanderbilt opened the stadium dedicated to football in 1922.

Vanderbilt will be renovating both end zones as part of its Vandy United project upgrading athletic facilities.

Mike Osborne is the News Director for WMOT and can be heard on-air daily.
