After battling through an SEC conference schedule the Mississippi St defense came out ranking 18th nationally in scoring defense by allowing opponents just 19.9 points a game.

They battled the number one ranked team in the nation in LSU tough as they fell 19-6 early in the year.

In the non-conference the Bulldogs topped eventual WAC conference champion the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs 26-20 in overtime.

Senior quarterback Chris Relf concluded regular season play hitting on 59.6% of his passes with nine touchdowns and seven interceptions.

Relf also possess the ability to run the football as the big 6’4” 245 pound quarterback has no fear in the open field.

Running back Vick Ballard had an impressive 1009 yard rushing season with 5.6 yards per rush.

Also in the backfield LaDarious Perkins produced a solid 5 yards per carry average on 81 runs from scrimmage.

Wake Forest was a nice story in the 2011 year. They bounced back following a dreadful 2010 campaign where they finished 3-9 and were absolutely pounded by opposing teams as their defense gave up an average of 35.8 points per game.

With 17 returning starters in 2011 the team showed just enough improvement on the field to earn a bowl berth.

Sophomore quarterback Tanner Price connected on nearly 61% of his throws with 20 touchdowns and 6 picks.

The defense allowed 27.8 points a game which was an eight point improvement from a year ago.

The Demon Deacons have a notable win against Florida St on the year. But after a 4-1 start to the year the team dropped six of their past eight games.

Another troubling stat for the ACC club was the fact they have been outgained by seven of their past eight opponents.

Mississippi St is trending to five point spread covers over their past six games.
