Kicking the Tires: Mississippi State

It’s difficult to imagine Chris Klieman’s tenure as K-State’s coach getting off to a better start. No, the competition hasn’t been good. But to paraphrase Bill Connelly, good teams make bad teams look like bad teams. K-State has done that with no-doubt wins over Nicholls (49-14) and Bowling Green (52-0).

That feels like the old days. But now it’s time to take a step up in competition. That step up is the Mississippi State Bulldogs (RV AP Poll/#23 Coaches Poll). The Bulldogs are 2-0 with wins over Louisiana (38-28) and Southern Miss (38-15).
