No. 21 and No.14 square off for a Top 25 showdown Saturday night inside Kyle Field.
Mississippi State comes in off a win against Auburn at home as they continue their tough trek in the schedule.
As for Texas A&M, they had to scratch and claw their last time out as they came from behind to knock off Arkansas in overtime 28-21.
The Bulldogs are the definition of a one man wrecking crew. QB Dak Prescott continues to be the only real playmaker for Mississippi State, but that hasn’t stopped him or the Bulldogs from racing out to a 3-1 record.
Their lone loss came by just 2 points to the LSU Tigers as they failed a two point conversion late.
Prescott finished 29 of 41 against Auburn last week with 270 yards in the win.
Prescott also surpassed 150 consecutive passes without being intercepted. Prescott’s ability to move the pocked and get out of trouble has been the major success for him and the Bulldogs.
However, like stated earlier, the Bulldogs really do not have anything else. The run game was just one of the many flaws Mississippi State endured last game as they managed just 56 yards.
That comes from the backs and the offensive line just not in sync. The O line really hasn’t given the Bulldogs backfield many gaps or holes to work with this season.
Texas A&M had to earn every bit of their 28-21 overtime win against the Razorbacks last week.
Arkansas led the entire game, but a late touchdown and 2 point conversion tied things up. After Arkansas turned the ball over, it gave A&M a chance to win it in regulation. However, a missed field goal attempt as time expired sent the game into overtime.
QB Kyle Allen finished off a phenomenal performance with 358 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
His main target, WR Christian Kirk, finished with 173 yards on 8 receptions. Kirk was on the receiving end of both of Allen’s touchdowns.
The run game will likely have to improve for A&M this week as they had just 55 yards on the ground against a very weak Arkansas run defense.
