BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Jan. 4 (UPI) -- Jordan Matthews made two 50-yard touchdown catches Saturday and Vanderbilt survived a furious Houston rally to post a 41-24 victory in the BBVA Compass Bowl.

Patton Robinette completed 6-of-19 passes for 154 yards with two TDs and two interceptions and carried 15 times for 37 yards with a score.

Jerron Seymour and Brian Kimbrow combined for 164 rushing yards and two scores for the Commodores, who ended with consecutive nine-win seasons for the first time in school history.

John O'Korn went 20-of-47 through the air for 228 yards, two scores and two pick-offs for the Cougars (8-5).

Markeith Ambles made six grabs for 105 yards with a TD. Deontay Greenberry finished with six catches for 96 yards and a touchdown.
