The amazing season for the Vanderbilt Commodores continued Monday as the Commodores win their ninth game of the year by beating North Carolina State 38-24 in the Music City Bowl. Vandy (9-4) has its best season since 1915 as quarterback Jordan Rodgers throws two touchdown passes and runs for another.
LSU ends its season on a down note, losing to Clemson 25-24 in the Chick-Fil-A Bowl in Atlanta. The Tigers kick a 37 yard field goal as time expires to get the win but LSU has itself to blame in part, giving up a fourth and 16 on the final drive to keep it alive for Clemson.
Georgia Tech beat USC 21-7 in the Sun Bowl and Tulsa hammers Iowa State 31-17 in the Liberty Bowl.
