It’s a big SEC showdown on Saturday night at David Wade Stadium in Starkville, Mississippi. The LSU Tigers come to town to take on the Mississippi State Bulldogs.
The Tigers have won the last two match ups played between the two teams. Last year they came out ahead by a final score of 23-20.
The LSU Tigers come into this game with a 2-0 record and are currently ranked 12th in all the country, but this will be the first true test for this team.
In the last game the Tigers beat Chattanooga by a final score of 45-10 but it was a weird game stat wise.
Quarterback Danny Etling only had eight completions in the game, but those eight completions went for 227 yards and a touchdown.
It’s good to see LSU have a quarterback who looks to have control of the offense, and has the ability to pass a good ball, because that is something they really struggled with the last couple of years, and is what probably kept them from reaching even bigger goals.
Defensively the Tigers have been really good this year so far. In their last game against Chattanooga they picked off two passes and the defensive line created all kinds of havoc finishing the game with five sacks.
The defense needs to be good again in this game and be disruptive like they were in games one and two.
Mississippi State Bulldogs
On the other side of this match up is the Mississippi State Bulldogs who have looked really good the first two games, and come into this game with a lot of confidence and they feel like they can pull the upset in this game.
In the first two games they have combined for 108 points while only giving up 21. If they want to win this game the offense need to keep rolling.
The leader of this team is quarterback Nick Fitzgerald and he is budding into a star. So far this season he has thrown for 363 yards and five touchdowns and one interception.
He has also rushed for 152 yards and three touchdowns. Early in this game he needs to use his legs and get the Tigers to respect that because that should really open up the passing game.
On the defensive side of the ball the Bulldogs have done a good job of creating turnovers and scoring defensive touchdowns and that needs to keep up.
The Tigers will turn the ball over if you force them into quick decisions and that is what the Bulldogs will need to do in this one.
