NASHVILLE, Tenn. | Vanderbilt delayed the start of preseason football practice Thursday after being alerted by the Southeastern Conference about a scheduling problem.
Practice will now begin Friday.
According to a news release from the school, an NCAA ruling states that teams have 29 preseason practice opportunities.
"The league simply said we were mistaken in interpreting when we could start our preseason schedule," coach Bobby Johnson said. "After numerous discussions with the SEC, we decided that delaying practice by a day was the right action."
The Commodores open the season at Miami of Ohio Aug. 28.
