It's a big day in Starkville, Mississippi as the Florida Gators come to town to play the Mississippi State Bulldogs.
There is a new coach and renewed hope at MSU this season as Dan Mullen, former Florida offensive coordinator takes over for Sylvester Croom. While the results haven't been consistent, they have been improved as the Bulldogs have been competitive throughout the first half of the season. Mississippi State is coming in off of a win against Middle Tennessee State, w win which ended a three game losing streak. The Bulldogs offense seems to be much improved but their defense seems to be non existent as they have been getting shredded. In Mississippi State's defense, they have played a very tough schedule including LSU, Auburn, Houston, and Georgia Tech. None of their losses have been blowouts and the team has played very competitively. They will need to play their best football of the year to keep this one close enough to have a shot at winning.
