Shark Bites
  • NC State is 5-2 ATS in their past seven following a loss.
  • Mississippi State is 6-2 ATS in their past eight games in December.
  • Dak Prescott has scored 76 touchdowns in the past two seasons.

Jacoby Birssett has been the leader of NC State’s offense with the quarterback throwing for 19 touchdowns and adding five more with his feet. However, the rushing game is arguably the most important part of the offense for the Wolfpack as they have averaged over 200 rushing yards per game this season.

There may not be a more important player to his team in the nation as Dak Prescott is to the Bulldogs. After a lot of Heisman votes last year, Prescott has quietly thrown for 25 touchdowns and four interceptions while leading Mississippi State in rushing yards and touchdowns.
