We have reached week three of the college football season which means there are still a lot of non conference showdowns.
In this game it’s a non-conference showdown between the UL Lafayette Ragin Cajuns and the Mississippi State Bulldogs in Starkville.
This will be the first game played between the two teams since 1987.
UL Lafayette Ragin Cajuns
The UL Lafayette Ragin Cajuns have only played one game so far this year but they sure were impressive in it. They took on Grambling as a 13 point favorite but they quickly started to flex their muscles coming away with a win 49-17.
The Ragin Cajuns used a balanced attack in their first game but actually had more success running the ball finishing with 315 yards on the ground.
The defense stepped up big giving up only 17 points but they are going to be having a much stiffer attack in this game and they are going to have to play better if they want a chance in this game.
The Cajuns created pressure in the first game and had an extra week to prepare for this game. If they want a chance to pull an upset in this game they need to get pressure early on.
If they let the Bulldogs have time in the pocket they will have issues in this game.
Mississippi State Bulldogs
On the other side of this matchup is the Mississippi State Bulldogs who look like a team that could make some noise in a very tough SEC.
They have won both games to start the season and also were able to cover the spread in both of the games. In their last game they took on a good test in the Kansas State Wildcats and were only 6.5 point favorites.
The defense was impressive though giving up only 10 points and that is what led to the really easy victory. They have only given up 16 points all season and it is what they will probably continue to lean on especially as they get into the SEC.
They are only giving up 95 yards per game on the ground and that will be key against UL Lafayette who has had success on the ground.
This game really should be a layup for the Bulldogs but they can’t overlook it or they will be the team on the end of a very bad upset.
