Vanderbilt Chasing Bowl Eligibility At Wake Forest
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - Vanderbilt wants to become bowl eligible. Wake Forest doesn't want to stop there.
The Commodores look to claim their sixth victory -- and first away from Nashville -- when they visit a Demon Deacons team that qualified for a bowl last week and is looking for more.
Wake Forest cornerback Bud Noel said the Demon Deacons (6-5) are "not satisfied because we know that we're a better team than just six wins."
Their challenge is twofold: Avoiding the temptation to relax because they've already clinched a spot in the postseason, and finding a way to handle a Southeastern Conference team that is perhaps better than its record indicates.
Vanderbilt (5-6) has lost four games by eight or fewer points.
