Challenges for Mississippi State

Mississippi State must pick themselves off the ground after a 40-point loss at home to Alabama. The pass-happy Bulldogs have the potential to thrive against Vandy’s 105th ranked passing defense. However, the Commodore offense seems to have found a player at quarterback in Mike Wright who nearly led Vandy to a road win over South Carolina. Wright completed 11 of 21 passes for 206 yards a touchdown and an interception. The speedy Wright also ran for 40 yards. It’s not certain, however, that Wright will start versus MSU. Ken Seals, the regular starter, could be recovered from his finger injury. Seals has 3,014 yards passing for 17 touchdowns in his two seasons at Vandy. Who knows? State might see both of these guys in the game.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 3:00 PM CT (4:00 PM ET). You can watch this SEC football game on the SEC Network.
