Joe D'Amico's NCAAF Music City Bowl MVP Winner
North Carolina State vs. Vanderbilt,
12/31/2012 12:00 EDT,
Score: 24 - 38
Point Spread: -7/-110 Vanderbilt
Monday's winner is Vanderbilt over NC State.
NC State's passing unit will be overwhelmed by the 10th ranked pass "D" of Vandy. As "acclaimed" as NC St's Glennon is at QB, he is still ranked 54th in the nation. The Commodores "D" held 8 opponents to 325 yards or less. The Wolf Pack averages 3.2 YPC and only two rushing TDs over their L7 games. The Vanderbilt stop unit has allowed only 175 YP per game and just 6 passing TDs on the season. Vandy is on a 6 game run with an offensive unit that posted 40 or more points in 4 of their L5. That doesn't bode well against an NC State secondary that ranks 94th vs. the pass. QB, Rodgers(2419 YP), RB Stacy (1034 YR), and WR, Matthews (1262 YR) has too many weapons for the NC State defense to handle. Lest not forget that VU's defense is a Top 20 squad vs. Total yards and scoring. Take Vanderbilt. Thank you.
