Still reeling from the five-point loss to the Crimson Tide, Mississippi State would benefit from a victory over Vanderbilt. The college football odds lean heavily in Mississippi’s favor, indicative of what’s expected out of the Bulldogs heading into Week 13.
With so many teams still capable of earning the fourth and final playoff spot, the Bulldogs will need to pull out all the stops during the final stretch of their regular season campaign – even if that means blowing out the -29.5 spread versus Vanderbilt.
Quarterback Dak Prescott has done a fine job keeping the Bulldogs at the top of their game this season, throwing for 20 touchdowns and running in 11 of his own. Now that the squad has faced its first taste of adversity, his leadership skills will be tested. There’s plenty of action to be played in the final weeks of the regular season.
