What to Know
Mississippi State haven't yet left their home-field this season, but they'll have to hit the road on Saturday. The Mississippi State Bulldogs and the South Carolina Gamecocks will face off in an SEC battle at 7:30 p.m. ET at Williams-Brice Stadium. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they'll have plenty of motivation to get the 'W'.

Nobody from Mississippi State had a standout game, but they still got scores from WR Lideatrick Griffin and TE Antonio Harmon.
The Bulldogs had trouble moving the ball and finished the game with only 201 total yards. They were dismantled by their opponents in that department as LSU gained 530.
Meanwhile, South Carolina's 8-4 record from last season has become a distant memory after another unsuccessful outing. They took a 24-14 hit to the loss column at the hands of Georgia on Saturday. Sadly, the loss only continues a disappointing trend for South Carolina: they've now lost four straight matchups with Georgia.
