Needing a win to become bowl eligible for just the fifth time in school history, the Vanderbilt Commodores travel to Winston-Salem, North Carolina to close out their schedule against the Wake Forest Demon Deacons.
The Commodores spoiled a seven-point, fourth-quarter lead against Tennessee last weekend and lost in overtime when Jordan Rodgers' pass was intercepted and returned 90 yards the other way for the deciding touchdown. Officials first ruled the Tennessee defender's knee was down but eventually overturned their call upon review to end the game. It was yet another meltdown on the road for the Commodores, who are winless in four tries away from home on the year.
As for the Demon Deacons, they were able to snap a three-game slide with a 31-10 win over Maryland last weekend. With the victory, they became bowl eligible for the first time since 2008. Wake Forest wrapped up ACC play with a 5-3 league mark, one game behind Atlantic Division leader Clemson.
