LSUs cocky defensive backs have been known to give up deep balls. Enter Ole Miss.

the Gators, giving new coach Joe Moorhead his first SEC victory. Also, Florida is 13th in the SEC in rushing defense and States offensive line is still smoldering the way it was handled in last Saturdays 28-7 loss at Kentucky. State clears the 200-yard rushing mark vs. It took former Florida offensive coordinator Dan Mullen until his fifth season as Mississippi States head coach before he molded his Tim Tebow 2.0 quarterback, a perfect run-pass option operator named Dak Prescott. Mullen wont have as long as he enjoyedat MSU to develop a dependable QB in his new gig coaching at Florida, a school that has fired its last two head coaches after four and three seasons respectively. Mullen was fortunate to heist Louisiana native Prescott from LSU country because then-Tigers coach Les Miles was dumb enough to attempt to recruit Prescott as a tight end. Current Gators starting QB Feleipe Franks has running skills nowhere near those of Prescott successor Nick Fitzgerald, whose pass accuracy needs to move the Starkvegas needle Saturday.

Mississippi State (2-0) vs. Louisiana (1-0) Game Preview

Kentucky deserved the win, but the Bulldogs jumpstarted it by stupidly getting sucked into Kentuckys web of smacktalk. The underdog wins. South Carolina wont do the same and the Gamecocks have considerably better offensive balance than UK or MSU. The resulting slew of unsportsmanlike conduct penalties put MSU behind the 8-ball too often. The boys in Vegas were impressed just enough by UKs macho-man 21-point beatdown of Mississippi State last week to make the Wildcats a slight home favorite.
