I’ve watched a good bit of Mississippi State over the past few days. I wanted to see what they looked like with a revamped defense and a quarterback comfortable in the Joe Moorhead system. I’ll give y’all the offense in a separate article, because I want to take a look at the defense first. I’ve limited the film clips to the first half of the USM game, because I feel like that gives me the best information on the Bulldogs starting defense.
For the K-State offense, this game is going to boil down to staying on schedule. The Wildcats must win on first and second down, because the Mississippi State defense thrives on third and long.
