Neither of these teams are at the top of their conferences this season, nor at the bottom. This is an in state game but not sure there is much rivalry here.
Home opener for Mississippi State. They could have some upside if they get the offense figured out….and the defense. It was elite last season.
Southern Miss Golden Eagles
This is the first of three road nonconference games for Southern Miss so you can’t blame them for scheduling light in week 1, 38-10 win over Alcorn State.
Jack Abraham has some experience at quarterback but the calibre of defense will be a lot better this week. He is missing Quez Watkins again due to academics. He is a good receiver.
They are also going to be missing one of their top running backs so moving the ball on the Bulldogs is going to be tough. I am not sure they can score enough.
This would be a nice win but probably too much on the road for the Southern Miss program right now. They are not the take on all comers group they have been.
Mississippi State Bulldogs
After one week the offense looked good for MSU. For starters it was Tommy Stevens, the transfer from Penn State that got the start at QB. He can put up numbers in this system.
Also running back Kylin Hill might be one of the more underrated players in the SEC. He rushed for almost 200 yards in the opener against ULL.
The defense took heavy losses to the NFL and needs to be built back up. They will be looking for improvement on the 28 points they gave up to ULL this week.
There is a lot to like from what we saw last week in terms of the offense. If they are going to cover a 17 point spread they need that defense too.

MSU did not cover last week on the road. Still they are looking at an even bigger number at home in their home opner.

The Bulldogs should win with relative ease. They are going to score more than the 38 points they did a week ago which will help us out a lot.
Souther Miss will get a few scores against a defense that is not right just yet. They won’t threaten though.
