2016 Belk Bowl Preview
The NC State Wolfpack and Mississippi State Bulldogs will face off on December 30th, 2015, at the 2015 Belk Bowl. The player to watch at the 2015 Belk Bowl will be Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott. Prescott is one of the best players in Bulldogs history and has accounted for almost 4000 all-purpose yards this season. Mississippi State came in to the season with hopes of a CFP berth, but struggled against top tier competition. NC State has been one of the underhanded teams this season, losing close games to premier teams in Clemson, FSU, and UNC. The Wolfpack will be looking to prove they should have taken a couple of those games. The 2015 Belk Bowl will feature two senior quarterbacks looking to leave their teams with a victory.
