LB Preston Smith starred for Dan Mullen and the Mississippi State Bulldogs in Starkville.

A very good athlete, Smith has shown the ability to cover smaller players in space, and also get after opposing quarterbacks with his myriad of pass-rushing moves.

The Redskins (5-3-1) won the contest by a score of 26-20 — and are right behind Dallas (7-1) for the lead spot in the NFC East.
