Corey’s Free Pick

Mississippi State has looked sharp thru two games, and there’s little reason to look away from them here at home. North Alabama comes in with a bit of experience, but they’ve been untested thus far, and this Power 5 matchup could be a real eye opener for them. The Bulldogs have retooled on the fly, and I like them handling business here.
