Mississippi State

None reported.



Mississippi State came out roaring in 2020 opener with the big upset win over LSU. Since then they’ve played worse than any other SEC team not named Vanderbilt. I have no reason to believe they can beat A&M but I didn’t think they’d beat LSU either. State’s passing game is kind of in disarray right now. I think once film got out, and this happened to other teams as well, folks learned how to stop the Leach passing attack. A&M wins by over 10.
