For the No. 5 ranked LSU Tigers (6-1), last week’s 36-16 win against then-ranked No. 2 Georgia was head coach Ed Orgeron’s marquee win since he became head coach in 2016. The Tigers defense threw a haymaker at the Bulldogs, who didn’t have an answer. LSU looks to avoid a letdown and welcomes the No. 22 Mississippi State Bulldogs (4-2) into Baton Rouge on Saturday night.
The game is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. ET and will be broadcast nationally on ESPN. If you don’t have cable or can’t get to a TV, you can still watch a live stream of the game (or DVR it) on your computer, phone or streaming device by signing up for one of the following cable-free, live-TV streaming services:
In addition to a Netflix-like on-demand streaming library, Hulu also offers a bundle of 50-plus live TV channels, including all the ESPN channels. You can sign up for “Hulu with Live TV” right here, and you can then watch a live stream of the game on your computer via the Hulu website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the Hulu app.
If you can’t watch live, “Hulu with Live TV” also comes with 50 hours of Cloud DVR storage (with the ability to upgrade to “Enhanced Cloud DVR,” which gives you 200 hours of DVR space and the ability to fast forward through commercials).
ESPN and ESPN 2 are both included in the “Sling Orange” channel package. You can sign up for a free 7-day trial, and you can then watch a live stream of the game on your computer via the Sling TV website, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the Sling TV app.
If you can’t watch live, you can get 50 hours of cloud DVR storage as an additional add-on.
Additionally, you can also watch a live stream of the game on your computer via ESPN.com, or on your phone, tablet or streaming device via the ESPN app. You’ll need to log in to a cable provider to watch this way, but if you don’t have that, you can still sign up for one of the above options and then use your Hulu or Sling TV credentials to sign in and watch on the ESPN digital platforms.
The Tigers have one of the best running back duos in the nation in senior Nick Brossette – 134 carries, 640 yards (4.8 yards per attempt), nine touchdowns – and sophomore Clyde Edwards-Helaire – 89 carries, 475 yards (5.3 YPC), five touchdowns – but they will only go as far as quarterback Joe Burrow takes them.
The Ohio State graduate transfer had 200 yards passing and two rushing touchdowns against Georgia. The week prior, he failed to reach 200 yards and threw two interceptions in a road loss against Florida. His game-winning drive against Auburn on September 15 doesn’t hold up as nicely now as it did then.
The Bulldogs’ season has been filled with tremendous highs and lows. After a head-scratching 13-6 loss – a game where quarterback Nick Fitzgerald was stymied and offense was set back collectively 100 years – against former head coach Dan Mullen and Florida three weeks ago, the Bulldogs rebounded to take down the Auburn Tigers 23-9 before heading into their bye week.
Key Matchup: Fitzgerald against the LSU defensive backs. The Tigers have 10 interceptions this season, tied for ninth in the country. Only Alabama has more among SEC programs.
