Mississippi State Preview

Returning Starters: 18

Offense: 8

Defense: 8

Punter, Kicker

Pros - Dak Prescott is a playmaker! You always have a shot when you have a playmaker and gamer at quarterback. It also helps that he has a pretty good group of wide-outs to throw too. The Bulldogs are also deep on defense. This could be Dan Mullen's most complete team.

Cons - They have to replace running back LaDarius Perkins, and have to find momentum in the middle of the season. They will start out 3-0, but what happens in the LSU, Texas A&M, and Auburn games will define the season for the Bulldogs.

Breakdown:

Aug. 30th vs. Sothern Miss - Win

Sept. 6th vs. UAB - Win

Sept. 13th at South Alabama - Win

Sept. 20th at LSU - Loss

Oct. 4th vs. Texas A&M - Swing Game

Oct. 11th vs. Auburn - Loss

Oct. 25th at Kentucky - Win

Nov. 1st vs Arkansas - Swing Game

Nov. 8th vs. Tennessee-Martin - Win

Nov. 15th at Alabama - Loss

Nov. 22nd vs. Vanderbilt - Win

Nov. 29th at Ole Miss - Swing Game

I'm calling for the Bulldogs to go to their 5th straight bowl game! But can it be a special year in Starkvegas? They have a weak non-conference, and very winnable SEC games against Kentucky, Arkansas, and Vanderbilt... doing some quick math...that's 7 wins. Another Egg Bowl win and a upset or two... and watch out. I don't think MSU is a true player in SEC, but I'm giving them a shot at a 9+ win season.

    Bragging rights and sports have always gone hand-in-hand with each other. Teams and players are always competing for the right to brag and pump their chest. Cities also enjoy showing off venues, always
    Cities also enjoy showing off venues, always trying to one up their neighbor, its human nature. Last night as the Birmingham Barons beat the Mississippi Braves in front of a packed out ballpark the city had bragging rights.
