In the final game of Monday’s triple-header, the NC State Wolfpack and Vanderbilt Commodores head to Shreveport, Louisiana for an ACC vs. SEC clash in the Independence Bowl.
Thanks to NC State’s defensive front, they should have the edge in this game. The Wolfpack enter as four-point favorites and deservedly so, but it will all come down to Ryan Finley taking care of the ball. In games where Finley has thrown an interception in 2016, the Wolfpack are 0-5.
On the other sideline, Vanderbilt will be forced to pass, so Kyle Shurmur will have to stay red hot and avoid making any crucial mistakes. If he can light up the NC State secondary, Vanderbilt could find themselves finishing off the year with three straight wins, including serious momentum builders against Ole Miss and Tennessee.
