MISSISSIPPI STATE: Following the Bulldogs' embarrassing 21-20 loss to South Alabama in Week 1, Dan Mullen's team rebounded with a 27-14 victory versus South Carolina last Saturday as a 7.5-point favorite. Mullen waited all the way up until kickoff before announcing that redshirt sophomore Nick Fitzgerald would start at quarterback. Fitzgerald rewarded his coach by throwing for 178 yards and two touchdowns while rushing 17 times for 195 yards in the victory.

LSU: The Tigers also rebounded from an opening-season loss, beating Jacksonville State 34-13 one week after losing 16-14 to Wisconsin at Lambeau Field. The big news this week in Baton Rouge is that senior quarterback Danny Etling is expected to draw the start against Mississippi State on Saturday night. Etling will replace Brandon Harris, who played poorly in five quarters of action this season.

OUR PICK: LSU has talent at receiver and running back but the quarterback position remains a mess. The Tigers will once again rely on their defense and ground game, which should make for another low-scoring LSU contest. The under is 4-0 in the Tigers' last four conference games and is 6-1 in their last seven games overall. On the other side, the under is 11-2 in the Bulldogs' last 13 conference games and is 8-2 in their last 10 games coming off a win.
