Wolfpack Slips to Vanderbilt in Music City Bowl, 38-24
Mike Glennon threw for 383 yards and one touchdown
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Dec. 31, 2012 – Mike Glennon threw for 383 yards and one touchdown, but Jordan Rodgers threw two touchdown passes and ran for another score as the Vanderbilt Commodores topped NC State 38-24 in the Music City Bowl.
The Commodores finished 9-4 for their best record since going 9-1 in 1915, and it is only the third time the smallest and only private university in the Southeastern Conference has won as many as nine games in a season. They also finished with seven straight wins, their longest streak since winning eight in 1948.
Vanderbilt forced a season-high five turnovers, including four in the first half, and turned those into 17 points.
N.C. State (7-6) wrapped up the season under interim coach Dana Bible. The loss snapped a two-game bowl winning streak. The Wolfpack had a 424-225 advantage in total offense.
