We have reached week seven of the college football season and most teams are playing in conference games this weekend.
But not everyone is playing conference game and that is the case in this showdown.
The BYU Cougars will make the trip to Davis Wade Stadium to take on the Mississippi State Bulldogs. In their showdown last year the Cougars won 28-21.
Coming into the season no one expected this type of season for the BYU Cougars. They come into this game with a 1-4 record and their only win was against Portland State, an FCS level school and even that game wasn’t a slam dunk.
The biggest issue they have had this year is Tanner Mangum and his injury issues. He has had an ankle injury and missed some time and no one was able to step up in his place.
He will be the starter in this game, but he still isn’t 100 percent and in the last game against Boise State it was pretty evident that he was struggling moving around on the ankle.
To win this game it’s all going to come down to the offensive side of the ball. They need to find a way to get the offense in a groove, and the passing game is going to need to be better.
Mississippi State Bulldogs
The Mississippi State Bulldogs got off to a great start winning three games in a row. The third victory was a rout of the LSU Tigers winning 37-7.
People seemed to have really high hopes after that game, and they started to become a pretty popular pick to make a run this season, but since that point they have really struggled.
In their last two games they have played Georgia and Auburn. In those two games they scored a total of 13 points while giving up 80 of them.
This game is a good opportunity though to turn their season around and get the 4th win of the season, and only two more victories away from a bowl game.
the Bulldogs are led by Nick Fitzgerald who was really good in the first three games, but has struggled in the last two.
In the last two games he has thrown less then 250 yards total and four interceptions. He needs to do a better job of hanging onto the ball, and not making so many careless passes.
The defense also needs to create turnovers in this one. The Cougars have had trouble with turnovers this season so the Bulldogs need to take advantage of that.
I would look for the defense to be flying around early, and to blitz a lot to try and put pressure on the offensive line.

But I think the Cougars have a lot of pride and they will still play hard in this game. I think the Bulldogs win but the Cougars will cover the spread.
