Challenges for Mississippi State

This is a crossroads game for Mississippi State. If the Bulldogs lose at Tennessee they’ll drop to 3-3 and a chance at a winning season or bowl game is slimmer. If State wins they go to 4-2
(2-1 SEC) and the rest of the season looks much brighter. Tennessee is a dumpster fire so far this season. That doesn’t mean the Vols can’t pull off a stunner like they did last year against Kentucky and Auburn. Mississippi State’s challenge for this game is to keep the Tennessee dumpster fire stoked.

Saturday‘s game kicks off at 11:00 AM CT (12:00 PM ET). Watch on the SEC Network.
