COLLEGE FOOTBALL FREE PICK: Take Mississippi State. According to latest college football trends, the Bulldogs are 1-4 against the spread in their last five neutral site games, 1-5 ATS in their last six games overall and 0-6 ATS in their last six games in August. But punt the trends in this one – Mississippi State should cover. The Bulldogs have won 13 straight non-conference games under head coach Dan Mullen, who needs just one more victory to become the first head coach in school history to reach 30 wins in his first five seasons. Mississippi State’s defense created a lot of turnovers last season and with Mike Gundy’s insistence on utilizing two quarterbacks to run his offense, takeaways could be huge in this game. Look for the Dogs to keep the game close.
