Music City Bowl 2012: Grading N.C. State and Vanderbilt's Performances

Vanderbilt notched its ninth win in a season for the first time since 1915 on Monday when the Commodores defeated N.C. State by 38-24 score in the Music City Bowl at LP Field in Nashville.

Vanderbilt's 10th-ranked passing defense gave N.C. State senior QB Mike Glennon trouble all afternoon. He threw three interceptions during the game, and the Wolfpack turned the ball over a total of five times. 

Despite a 424-255 yardage advantage in favor of the Wolfpack, the game felt as though Vanderbilt dominated from start to finish. 

Vanderbilt's Zac Stacy found the end zone one time and had a strong game on the ground for the Commodores. 

The Commodores ended the season 9-5 and the Wolfpack finished the 2012 campaign with a 7-6 record. N.C. State will now hand complete control of the football program over to new head coach Dave Doren, who came from Northern Illinois. 

To put a bow on 2012 and the Music City Bowl, let's grade the performances by the Commodores and the Wolfpack.
