What You Need to Know:

  • The Aggies took a bit of a nosedive in the rankings, falling to #15 in the AP poll following a thoroughly lackluster performance against Arkansas.
  • Mississippi State is 2-2. All of their games have been decided by 3 points or less, except for the game where they beat the team that beat Clemson by 2 touchdowns. Mike Leach, everyone.

Historical Notes:

  • The all-time series between these two schools is tied at 7 wins each. The Aggies have won the last two contests.
  • Famous MSU alum include Machine Gun Kelly and John Grisham. Give us some more!
  • Mississippi State’s live bulldog mascot Bully ain’t skeered of nobody.

What To Watch For:

  • O-Face. Arkansas held the Aggies to 272 yards of offense, including our lone touchdown of 67 yards. Hopefully we’ll find some yards scattered around on the field somewhere, because it doesn’t seem like we can make our own.
  • AIRRAID. Mississippi State has the 6th-ranked passing offense in the nation. Let’s go, secondary.
  • NIGHT MOVES- It’s the first SEC game of the year under the lights. Let’s get crazy
