Mississippi State Bulldogs News
10-1-14: The #14 Mississippi State Bulldogs will face easily their toughest task this season this week when they host the #6 Texas A&M Aggies at home in Davis Wade Stadium. The Bulldogs have an extra week to prepare for the Aggies as the game will not be played until October, 4. Both teams are 4-0 on the season and both teams are also 1-0 in the SEC this season so something had to give this afternoon in Mississippi, although the Aggies face Arkansas this weekend. Mississippi State is part of a huge log jam in the SEC Western Conference that showcases five undefeated teams and five teams that are all 1-0 in the conference. Mississippi State has won their four games this season by keeping the other team off the scoreboard and by rushing the football. The Bulldogs have the 19th best rushing attack in the nation as the team has averaged 270.8 yards per game this season mostly on the legs of Josh Robinson and Dak Prescott. Robinson has 485 yards and four touchdowns while Prescott, the Bulldogs quarterback, has 378 rushing yards with three touchdowns. Mississippi State is also ranked 16th in the nation in points allowed by the defense as the team has only allowed an average of 16.5 points per game. It sounds simple enough but if you cannot put the ball into the end zone and stop the Mississippi State rushing game you’re not going to win this game if you are Texas A&M.
