Nashville, TN (Sports Network) - Vick Ballard had two long touchdown runs Friday to lead Mississippi State to a 23-17 win over Wake Forest at the Music City Bowl.

Ballard had touchdown runs of 60 and 72 yards and finished the game with 180 yards on 14 carries. Chris Relf threw for 129 yards, one score and two interceptions on 12-of-19 passing and also carried the ball 15 times for 64 yards for the Bulldogs (7-6), who won their last two games.

"We were sloppy at some times, we were good at some times," said Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen. "But we made the plays we needed to at the end."continue>>
