Orange Bowl Picks Analysis: Ole Miss is led by Heisman Trophy vote-getting quarterback Dak Prescott (151.3 passer rating). Prescott has a great rapport with his #1 target wide receiver De’Runnya Wilson (88.7 yards rec. per game) who should be able to penetrate Tech’s 86th ranked pass-efficiency defense. The Yellow Jackets triple-option offense is always dangerous led by terrific duel-threat QB Justin Thomas (153.7 passer rating 965 yards rushing). Thomas has shown the ability to connect on deep throws to his big wideouts but Thomas has completed only 50.9% of his passes. Thomas will be met by a solid if not spectacular Bulldogs pass-defense that ranks 22nd in pass efficiency defense. Mississippi State vs Georgia Tech Odds Over/Under is at 60.5 points at SPORTS BETTING ONLINE

ESPN2 News Bottom Line: Mississippi State will benefit from the time off to rest and refocus. The Bulldogs defense only allows 3.7 yards per carry and they should be able to load the box to stop G.T.’s triple-option. The Yellow Jackets run defense gets gouged for 5.9 yards per carry and Mississippi running back Josh Robinson (6.4 yards per carry 11 TD) should help control the clock.
