WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - Zac Stacy ran for 184 yards and three touchdowns and Vanderbilt became bowl-eligible by beating sluggish Wake Forest 41-7 on Saturday night.

Quarterback Jordan Rodgers had 229 total yards for the Commodores (6-6). Rodgers, the younger brother of NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers, threw for 139 yards and one touchdown and ran for 90 more.

Stacy scored on runs of 1 and 20 yards in the second quarter as Vanderbilt built a 20-point halftime lead, then iced the win for Vanderbilt with his 40-yard TD run midway through the fourth quarter.

Larry Smith, the Commodores' former starting QB, also hit a 45-yard flanker option pass for a score as Vanderbilt became bowl-eligible for the first time since 2008.

Tanner Price threw for 157 yards and one touchdown before coming out of the game late in the fourth quarter for the Demon Deacons (6-6), who had their lowest-scoring game of the season.
