SATURDAY MIDDAY CFB TOP PLAY #3
Mississippi State Bulldogs (0-0) at LSU Tigers (0-0)
Saturday, September 26, 2020 at 3:30 pm
LSU is coming off of one of the most prolific offensive seasons in college football history, but when that happens and is culminated by a national championship, parts will be moved. Like four starting O-linemen, five top receivers as well as the starting QB and leading rusher. Ed Orgeron’s turning the keys over the Myles Brennan who served as Joe Burrow’s backup last year and the defense still has some pieces left, but this could be a terrible matchup for the Tigers early on. Mike Leach is coach at Mississippi State now, and he brings his patented aerial offense from the Pac-12 to the SEC. K.J. Costello transfers in from Stanford and is expected to start at QB, which could be a great match as his last healthy season in 2018 saw Costello throw for 3,540 yards and 29 TDs. Costello will also have some solid receivers and top RB Kylin Hill at his disposal as well. The Bulldogs are no prize defensively themselves, but there’s enough here for Mississippi State to get us a cover. I’ll take the Mississippi State Bulldogs and the points here.
