Vandy trying to finish off best season since 1915

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE (AP) -

The Vanderbilt Commodores have made lots of history this season, and now they can do something not seen at this private university in nearly a century.

Win a ninth game.

Coach James Franklin isn't talking about the opportunity his Commodores have Monday in the Music City Bowl against North Carolina State (7-5). Not yet, even though it would be their first nine-win season since 1915 and only their third all-time. Not when he's been so busy coaching and trying to sell as many tickets to turn LP Field, home of the NFL's Tennessee Titans, into a home field.

Franklin calls this a perfect situation for Vanderbilt still trying to build its brand and following.

N.C. State is between coaches with offensive coordinator Dana Bible serving as interim coach.
