Click Here for the Latest Odds

The Jackson State Tigers, led by Deion Sander, will take on the South Carolina State Bulldogs on Saturday in the Celebration Bowl on ABC. Jackson State has won 9 games in a row. South Carolina will be looking to win their second consecutive game of high importance. This game kicks off at Noon ET from the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.

The Jackson State Tigers just made history as they signed a top recruit for next season. This season they won the SWAC. The Tigers are coming off a 27-10 win over Prairie View as 7.5-points favorites. They finished ranked No. 14 in the FCS Coaches Poll

Shedeur Sanders, son of Coach Sanders, has played great ball for his father. He has thrown for 3,056 yards with 29 touchdowns to 6 interceptions on the year. 

Jackson State was tied for second in the SWAC, averaging 29 points per game, and seventh in total yards picking up 349.8 per game. The defense was impressive as they held conference foes to 13.5 points per game and 255.9 total yards.

South Carolina State won the MEAC championship this season. The Bulldogs are coming off a 31-21 win over Norfolk State as five-point underdogs. They have won 5 of their last 6 games.

Corey Fields Jr leads the team with 1,931 passing yards, completing 50.7% of his passes, with 13 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Fields is expected to have a big game as South Carolina State prefers to play through the air. 

The Bulldogs are averaging 24.4 points per game. They are averaging 210.2 passing yards and 141.9 rushing yards per game. The defense is allowing 27.6 points per game and 353.4 total yards per game.

This is Jackson State's first trip to the Celebration Bowl, and in front of a sell-out crowd on National TV on ABC Network coach Sanders and the Tigers will want to show up and dominate, especially after signing 5-star cornerback Travis Hunter earlier in the week. Jackson State wants to show the world that they mean business and should cover this 10 point spread as they are in a different class.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
