Corey’s Free Pick

Mississippi State played very well in their season-opener, and despite knocking off Arizona State and nabbing a Power 5 win, there is a chance Tennessee-Martin comes in and gives them a game. The Skyhawks may just be one of the deepest mid-majors in the country, and if they come into StarkVegas with the right mindset, they can make use of the generous margin here. Let’s roll the dice and spot UT-Martin the points for this non-conference battle.
