Mississippi St. Bulldogs vs. Georgia Bulldogs
Two packs of SEC Bulldogs will do battle at Sanford Stadium in Athens this weekend, as Georgia entertains Mississippi State. Since beating up on Memphis in the season opener, Mississippi State has clearly struggled. The team dropped back-to-back league affairs to Auburn and LSU before needing overtime to sneak past Louisiana Tech at home last week by a 26-20 final. Head coach Dan Mullen is fully aware that an 0-3 start to conference play would be impossible to overcome, so a victory this weekend is vital.
As for the other Bulldogs, Georgia got off to an 0-2 start, but the two losses came against outstanding opponents in Boise State and South Carolina. Fortunately for Mark Richt, his team has bounced back with two straight wins to even its overall record. Last week’s win over Ole Miss on the road by a 27-13 final evened the Dawgs’ SEC record at 1-1. Georgia owns a 16-6 series advantage over Mississippi State, but MSU won last season’s matchup by a 24-12 final.
Defensiviely we like the under the listed total as both teams usually play close tight games. Look for a close winner but the under is the way to go here members.
