My Prediction: Another boring matchup of 6-6 teams here. Mississippi State had very high expectations to begin the year and fell flat. The Deacons played pretty well down the stretch despite their 41-7 loss to Vanderbilt. They had already clinched a bowl berth so I’ll give them a pass. QB Tanner Price will be the difference for Wake in this one. I can see them winning outright.
Wake Forest +7
