Turnover-prone N.C. State falls to Vanderbilt in Music City Bowl

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — A season that started with so much hope for N.C. State ended in the worst-case scenario on Monday in the Music City Bowl.

Vanderbilt turned five turnovers into a 38-24 win over N.C. State for its seventh straight win of the season and third bowl win in program history.

Under interim coach Dana Bible, N.C. State (7-6) was sloppy and undisciplined, racking up turnovers and penalties to close the season with the same way it started — a loss to an SEC team.

Pack to face Vandy, Franklin in Music City Bowl

N.C. State's football team will end up on the same field as James Franklin after all.

The Wolfpack will face Franklin's Vanderbilt team in the Music City Bowl on Dec. 31 (noon, ESPN) in Nashville, Tenn.

N.C. State athletic director Debbie Yow has described Franklin as a "good friend" and previously hired him at Maryland. Early speculation after Tom O'Brien was fired focused on Franklin but Yow eliminated him from the process a week ago and hired Dave Doeren from Northern Illinois on Saturday night.

Tar Heels top Vols 30-27 in a wild 2OT finish

NASHVILLE, Tenn. —  Tennessee dropped North Carolina from its schedule for the next two years.

Good call. The Volunteers don't want to see UNC again after Thursday's wild Music City Bowl.

UNC won 30-27 in overtime after a controversial and confusing finish to regulation which saw UNC's Casey Barth kick a 39-yard field goal to force overtime after head official Dennis Lipski declared the game over.

Tar Heels to face Tennessee in Music City Bowl

Bowl outlook: UNC-Kentucky shaping up

North Carolina's basketball tradition could land its football team in the Music City Bowl.

The Music City is lining up a potential hoops-themed matchup between the Tar Heels (8-4) and Kentucky (7-5) for their bowl game on Dec. 27 in Nashville, Tenn.

The two winningest programs in college basketball history meet annually, and are set to play this Saturday in Lexington, Ky., but the football teams haven't met since 1990.
