Mississippi State comes into the game following a 62-7 thrashing of Troy. Dak Prescott has been an excellent replacement for Tyler Russell who has not played since he was concussed in the first game of the season against Oklahoma State.
Tyler (Russell) is our starting quarterback. We plan on Tyler being the starter against LSU and going forward
The Mississippi State offense has looked good as a unit. They are averaging 34 points a game, but their competition has been mediocre, and they have not had any individuals that have been consistently dominant.
The Mississippi State defense has been a force, holding opponents to an average of 14.8 points a game. They have yet to play an explosive offense, but they have been imposing their will on inferior competition.
LSU is home to one of the most complete offenses in the country. Under new offensive coordinator, Cam Cameron, the LSU offense has been transformed into the Tigers’ biggest strength.
Zach Mettenberger has been sensation and has constantly hit star receivers Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham for big plays. Jeremy Hill has been unstoppable since coming back from his suspension for his involvement in a bar fight, back in April.
The LSU defense lost eight players to the NFL draft last year, more than any other school. The LSU defense showed signs of weakness early, but were fully exposed in the shootout with Georgia. They looked pathetic, allowing Georgia to rack up 44 points to beat the Tigers by three.
Mississippi State has played well this season, but LSU is far their most difficult game to date. The LSU offense has not been slowed all season, and Mississippi State will not be able to change that. The Tiger defense is going to come into the game pissed off. They were embarrassed against Georgia, and will use the extra motivation to slow down Mississippi State. The LSU Tigers will defeat the Mississippi State Bulldogs by at least 21.
