Two struggling teams meet in Starkville and battle for the right to not be called the worst team in the league. Vanderbilt currently holds that unflattering title. If they can somehow knock off State that title will belong to the Bulldogs. Mississippi State should win though. They have a terrible offense and a decent defense. Vandy is terrible on both offense and defense. Although Vandy did show some improvement offensively against Ole Miss, they are still very poor. State should win by double-digits. Mississippi State’s very poor turnover margin, the worst in the SEC and three times worse than the second worst SEC turnover margin, gives Vandy some hope in this one.
