Tennessee State vs Mississippi State Preview

Tennessee State is coming off a 36-7 loss to Austin Peay last week. Quarterback Chayil Garnett completed nine of 19 passes for 95 yards, a touchdown and an interception in a losing effort. The Tigers managed just 98 yards rushing the entire game, and they were just three for 17 on third down. Nine penalties for a loss of 60 total yards also crippled them.

Now, Tennessee State will be challenged by a Mississippi State team that is averaging 29.5 points a game, while also allowing 26.2 points a game on the defensive side of the ball.

“They don’t do a lot of running with the football, but when you’re that efficient as a quarterback — getting the ball out fast and making completions — it puts a lot of stress on the defense,” Tigers head coach Eddie George said about Mississippi State, per The Dispatch. “For us, it’s going to be how we tackle in space, how we tackle the receivers, and when they get in the red zone trying to make them kick field goals versus scoring touchdowns.”

The Bulldogs are fresh from a 43-34 when over the Auburn Tigers last weekend. Mississippi State quarterback Will Rogers was lights out in the victory, completing 44 of 55 passes for 415 yards and six touchdowns. The Bulldogs netted 487 total yards of offense, but their defense allowed 483 yards, so they’re susceptible, particularly against the pass.

Mississippi State has been solid against the run, allowing 102.2 yards per game to opponents on the ground. Against the pass, however they’re giving up 235.7 yards per game and 7.5 yards per attempt. The Tigers are averaging 207.0 passing yards per game, and 7.06 yards per attempt, so there’s some room to attack the Bulldogs through the air.

“I think they look good,” Bulldogs head coach Mike Leach said about Tennessee State. “They run real well. They run well, and they’re pretty aggressive. I think they play real hard, too.”

This promises to be a knockdown, drag-out fight, and whichever team gets off to the better start could very well wind up the victor.

“I don’t know if you watch Game of Thrones, but winter is coming,” George added. “Winter is coming, and it’s time to get busy.”
