Mississippi State 23, Wake Forest 17        FINAL SCORE

CLICK HERE FOR THE HIGHLIGHT REEL FROM ESPN (1:17 long)

Mississippi State's rushing attack and scoring defense battles the Wake Forest Demon Deacons' superior passing attack. (Almost 70 yards per game better than the Bulldogs.)

Bullldogs running back Vick Ballard will be looking to extend his already 1,000-plus yard rushing season at the expense of the Deacons D-line.

Meanwhile, quarterback Tanner Price is less than 200 yards away from a 3,000-yard season, and if the Deacons can hit their average, he'll get it. All I can say is, "good luck"—this Bulldog D is rough.

These teams are excellently poised to capitalize on the opposition's weaknesses. This could be a great game, or it could be over at halftime.

As the first postseason game featuring an SEC team, I'm expecting a LOT of crowd noise. Wake Forest fans will have a hard time keeping pace, but I'm sure they're up to the challenge.
