Challenges for Mississippi State

Mississippi State has the chance of a lifetime, hosting an Alabama team with a bloody nose in Starkville. To win, the Bulldogs need quarterback Will Rogers to have the game of his life. Mike Leach’s pass-happy offense depends on pinpoint passing. If Rogers can put passes on the money it’ll mean more yards gained, and hopefully more points. Rogers also needs to avoid sacks, which are drive killers for most offenses. This is a game the Bulldogs can win if they execute their schemes to perfection.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 6:00 PM CT (7:00 PM ET). You can watch this SEC football game on the ESPN Network.
