What to Know
The Wake Forest Demon Deacons and the Michigan State Spartans have had some time off and are no doubt ready to hit the field. Wake and MSU will compete for holiday cheer in the Holiday Bowl on Friday at Yankee Stadium at 3:20 p.m. ET test. Coming off of a loss in a game they were expected to win, the Demon Deacons now face the more daunting task of proving themselves against unfavorable odds.
Wake fought the good fight in their overtime matchup against the Syracuse Orange four weeks ago but wound up with a less-than-desirable result. Wake lost to 'Cuse 39-30. The Demon Deacons got a solid performance out of WR Donavon Greene, who caught seven passes for one TD and 172 yards; unfortunately, it just wasn't enough for the win. Near the top of the highlight reel was Sam Hartman's 75-yard TD bomb to Greene in the third quarter.
Meanwhile, things were close when MSU and the Maryland Terrapins clashed four weeks ago, but the Spartans ultimately edged out the opposition 19-16. The overall outcome was to be expected, but Maryland made it more of a game than the oddsmakers had predicted.
The Spartans' defense was a presence, and it made life painful for the quarterback and got past Maryland's offensive line for a total of five sacks for a loss of 27 yards. It was a group effort with four picking up 1.5 sacks apiece.
Michigan State's victory lifted them to 6-6 while Wake Forest's defeat dropped them down to 8-4. A couple offensive numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: The Demon Deacons rank 12th in the nation when it comes to yards per game, with 473.4 on average. Less enviably, the Spartans are stumbling into the contest with the 14th fewest rushing touchdowns in the nation, having accrued only 11 on the season.

Hunt knows that Lewerke came up with a solid performance in the Spartans' 19-16 win against Maryland on Nov. 30 despite finishing without a touchdown pass. The senior, who did run for a score, completed 30-of-41 attempts for a season-high 342 yards, the eighth 300-yard effort of his career. Lewerke is second in school history with 9,182 yards of total offense, 221 behind Connor Cook (2012-15).
Lewerke has made 695 career completions, leaving him 28 away from tying Kirk Cousins for first place on Michigan State's all-time list. He needs only 27 passing yards to reach 8,000 for his career. Redshirt freshman Elijah Collins led the Spartans with 892 rushing yards and has reached triple-digits in two of his last four contests.
Even though the Spartans can run the ball, they are no guarantee to cover the Liverpool vs Wolves spread in the Camping World Bowl 2019.
That's because the Demon Deacons appear to have gotten back on track offensively, scoring at least 30 points in their last two games after totaling 20 in the previous two. Wake Forest ranks 12th in the nation in total offense with an average of 473.4 yards per contest. Its success against Michigan State could hinge of the availability of junior quarterback Jamie Newman, who will reportedly start.
Newman, who suffered an apparent leg injury in the loss to Syracuse, completed 62.3 percent of his pass attempts for 2,693 yards and 23 touchdowns this season. The 6-4 signal-caller also ran for 487 yards and led the Demon Deacons with six rushing scores. Cade Carney topped the squad with 556 yards on the ground, with Kenneth Walker III finishing with one less yard on 53 fewer carries.
