Mississippi State is for real
Everyone knew that Mississippi State had a good team this season, but most people would agree that they didn’t expect them to knock off LSU and Texas A&M in back to back weeks. The Bulldogs blew out the Aggies 48-31 and it was never close.
Texas A&M did score first on a 13 yard pass from Kenny Hill to Josh Reynolds. That was the only time that the Aggies led the whole game. Mississippi State went on to score 28 straight points before A&M would score again.
Dak Prescott was the player of the game for Mississippi State throwing for 259 yards on 19 completions with two touchdowns. Prescott also ran for 77 yards and three touchdowns, he had five total in the game. Prescott is firmly in the Heisman race now and could be the frontrunner after this game. Sophomore De’Runnya Wilson looked good with 72 yards receiving on four catches and a touchdown. Josh Robinson rushed for 107 yards on 17 carries and two touchdowns. Moving forward Mississippi State looks like a top 5 team in the country and I would be surprised to see them take that leap this week.
Kenny Hill turned the ball over three times, but was able to throw four touchdowns. Hill threw for 365 yards on 37 completions, the problem for A&M was they threw the ball 62 times. Tra Carson ran for 59 yards on 11 carries if A&M wants to compete in the West this season they will need to get him involved a lot more. The A&M receivers struggled with drops in the game. Rickey Seals-Jones led all the receivers with 72 yards on 10 catches. The Texas A&M defense forced two fumbles, but still gave up 559 yards to the Mississippi State offense.
Texas A&M will host #11 Ole Miss next week in another key matchup for the Aggies.
Mississippi State will host #5 Auburn next week this game will be huge in term of the West division.
