Nashville, TN-Vanderbilt is no longer considered the runt of the SEC. On Monday, Vandy crushed North Carolina State, 38-24, to win the Music City Bowl in front of its fans in Nashville.
Vanderbilt finished the 2012 season with a 9-4 mark, the Commodores best record since 1915. The Music City Bowl win was Vandy’s seventh straight victory. Jordan Rodgers threw two touchdown passes
and ran for a score to help a Vanderbilt defense that came up with five turnovers.
