LSU vs. Mississippi State Football Series History
LSU leads 73-38-3
State is coming off a gut-wrenching loss at Memphis while LSU handled Central Michigan in Baton Rouge. LSU is rated higher than Mississippi State by most ratings and polls but I think they are still riding the momentum of the 2019 title. State should win this one in Starkville but it’ll be close.
