MSU coach Dan Mullen will also be wearing a patch to promote Coach To Cure MD to raise awareness and money to fund research for Duchenne muscular dystrophy. For more information on this childhood genetic disorder, visit www.CoachToCureMD.org.
The Bulldogs and the Trojans will meet for the fourth time on Saturday, with MSU winning the last two games in the series. Mullen’s squad held off a late rally last season to claim a 30-24 victory last year. Offense ruled the night as the teams combined for over 1,000 total yards, with Bulldog stars LaDarius Perkins and Chad Bumphis combining for almost 400 offensive yards and every MSU touchdown.
Mississippi State looks to bounce back from a tough 24-20 loss at Auburn last weekend. The Tigers scored with 10 seconds remaining to take the lead after the Bulldogs led for virtually the entire second half.
Sophomore quarterback Dak Prescott shined in his first-career road start, passing for 213 yards and rushing for 133 yards and two touchdowns. MSU’s defense created three turnovers on the day to go along with a season-high three sacks.
The Trojans suffered their first loss of the season in 41-34 affair at Arkansas State. Trojan quarterback Corey Robinson leads Coach Larry Blakeney’s high scoring offense. The senior had only thrown four incomplete passes all season before the game against ASU, and he has already amassed 870 yards through the air after only three games.
MSU boasts a 25-3-2 record all-time against teams from the Sun Belt and hasn’t lost a nonconference game at home since 2009.
