Louisiana Tech Bulldogs
The Bulldogs of Louisiana Tech have won a trio of consecutive contests as part a five-game stretch in which they’ve won total. The offense has looked inconsistent, but the defensive side of the field has seen a bit of a turnaround and is doing enough to make up the difference.
On defense, Louisiana Tech has done a good job of getting into opposing backfields. In particular, Jaylon Ferguson is becoming a serious pain in the neck for opposing quarterbacks. He has 10.5 sacks on the year.
The catch in that is that the approach here has to be more about the run defense. These Bulldogs have a tendency to give up big games to opposing running backs.
Louisiana Tech is 65th in the nation in defending the run, while Mississippi State is sitting just outside the top 25 in terms of offensive rushing yards per game.
Mississippi State Bulldogs
Mississippi State knows the game plan coming in that’s going to give them the most success.
Run. The. Football.
Nick Fitzgerald is a nice workhorse out of the Mississippi State backfield. He had 88 yards and two touchdowns in last week’s contest versus Texas A&M, but getting over 100 yards is a very realistic (and quite frankly conservative) projection against the Bulldogs of Louisiana Tech.
Truth be told, Louisiana Tech’s defense has been good enough as of late to make life a little bit tougher on the running game of Mississippi State.
But Mississippi State has a consistent enough attack to cause some trouble for the road team.

4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Louisiana Tech ATS
Mississippi State should end up with a solid victory, but we just can’t give them the win ATS at -24 knowing that the run game and the run defense are going to be the two points of emphasis in this one.
Expect a win straight up but not against the spread for the Bulldogs.
