STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi State might have a really good football team.
The five straight games the Bulldogs have won to start the season would certainly indicate that's the case.
But delve deeper into Mississippi State's schedule and it quickly becomes apparent that the 19th-ranked Bulldogs (5-0, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) haven't had a particularly tough road this season. Their victories have come over teams with a combined 8-19 record, so Saturday's game against Tennessee (3-2, 0-2) represents the toughest challenge to date.
Tennessee comes to Davis Wade Stadium with an explosive offense, one that ranks second in the SEC with more than 506 yards per game. The Volunteers are led by quarterback Tyler Bray, who has thrown for 1,582 yards and 14 touchdowns.
Both of Tennessee's losses have come to ranked opponents.
