Wofford actually had Mississippi State on the ropes 50-41 after the first half, but faded down the stretch and were outscored by 20. Still, they’ve been initially competitive in many of their tough games this year.
As for WCU, they haven’t been able to get past 60 points in any of their last three games. I’m going to stick with the Terriers on the cover here.
