Challenges for Mississippi State
The Tigers are loaded with talent. One player on defense to keep an eye on is LSU sophomore cornerback Derek Stingley Jr. is a consensus All-America pick. Last year during LSU’s national championship run Stingley had six interceptions and 15 pass deflections. He’s also a threat as a return man. For Leach’s offensive to work on Saturday the Bulldogs must not allow Stingley to obstruct State’s passing attack. On offense, wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase had 84 receptions for 20 touchdowns while averaging over 20 yards per reception.
