If Mississippi State has any intention of being anything more than an SEC afterthought, then the road to contender begins Thursday night.
Standing in the Bulldogs’ way at Davis Wade Stadium is third-ranked LSU and arguably the nation’s stingiest defense.
The Tigers’ defense will be challenged by Dan Mullen’s offense, as Mississippi State is putting up some impressive numbers (46.5 points per game and 588 total yards through two games).
LSU has allowed just 15 points per game and only 215.0 total yards per game, and just 45.5 on the ground.
Kickoff is scheduled for 8 p.m. and the game is televised by ESPN.
