Why Abilene Christian Will Win

Here comes the pass rush.

The Wildcats are great against the run, they take the ball away, and they’re outstanding at getting into the backfield on a regular basis.

They might be struggling offensively, but the defensive front is among the best in the FCS with 35 sacks on the season with 17 forced fumbles – and it’s getting better.

The Mississippi State offensive line is good for the running game, and it’s not totally miserable in pass protection but if all-around playmaker Jeremiah Chambers and top pass rushers Kameron Hill and Temisan Kuyatsemi can get off early, they’ll halt what the Bulldogs can do down the field.

Why Mississippi State Will Win

Abilene Christian isn’t able to throw the ball down the field, either.

There isn’t a ton of explosion among the receivers, and there are too many picks being given away. If the Bulldogs can swarm around RB Tracy James, the ACU offense stops.

Offensively, this is where the MSU running game gets moving again.

It averaged over five yards per carry against Alabama, but the game got out of hand in a hurry and the running game stalled after one good drive.

This week, the offense that rumbled for 460 yards on the ground against Arkansas, and tore off 239 yards against Texas A&M, will hammer away from the start.

ACU has a terrific run defense – at least statistically thanks to the pass rush – but it’s about to give up over 200 yards.

What’s Going To Happen

After losing five of its last six games, the 4-6 Bulldogs get the fifth win to set itself up for a shot at bowl eligibility when they face Ole Miss five days later.

Because of the short week, they’re going to want to get this done early and rest the main guys as soon as possible. That won’t be easy considering the ACU defense will keep this from getting out of hand, but the Bulldog defense will put this away by halftime.
