Music City Bowl 2012: North Carolina State vs Vanderbilt TV Info & Predictions

The 2012 Music City Bowl has a bit of history surrounding the game, as for the first time in school history Vanderbilt is playing in its second straight bowl game. On top of the Commodores date with program history, North Carolina State is playing its last game before Dave Doeren takes over when the 2013 season starts. 

Aside from those two stories leading into this bowl game, it features a very good passing attack from North Carolina State going up against a stout Vanderbilt defense. 

The Wolfpack's passing game is led by Mike Glennon, who was the best in the ACC this year with 3,648 yards with an average of 304 yards per game. Glennon finished only behind Clemson's Tajh Boyd for the lead in the ACC for touchdown passes: as Boyd finished with 34 to Glennon's 30. 

Vanderbilt, on the other hand, brings to this game the best passing defense in the SEC. 

The Commodores gave up, on average, 175.8 yards per game to opposing quarterbacks while surrendering only six touchdown passes.

Which will prevail in the Music City Bowl: Vanderbilt's pass defense, or Glennon's ability to air the ball out to his receivers?
