100 Days of SEC Dominance: Vanderbilt Won A Bowl Game This Decade


This game is so much fun to me. 

There was nothing memorable about the 2012 Music City Bowl, which pitted Vanderbilt in a relative home game against N.C. State. Well, except Vanderbilt won a bowl game and finished the season in the top 25.

Some more fun:

  • N.C. State’s QB? Mike Glennon, who was the beneficiary of Tom O’Brien forcing Super Bowl champ Russell Wilson out of Raleigh.
  • O’Brien was fired prior to this game, based predominately on the fact above.
  • The winning QB is none other than Bachelor heartthrob Jordan Rodgers, brother of Aaron.
  • James Franklin left for Penn State after this game, and Vanderbilt went back to being Vanderbilt. Franklin’s sparring partner, Todd Grantham, was never the same and left Georgia for Louisville a year later.

Even the bottom (population: 1) of the SEC can beat a slightly-below-average team from another league, and do so fairly handily. On day 2 of the 100 day countdown, we make sure even the serfs get their love.
