I don't know that Dan Mullen gets enough credit for what a great job he's done with Mississippi State. This team was on par with Kentucky and Vanderbilt before Mullen came along. Now they are at least respectable fodder, capable of covering a spread or two, for the top teams in the SEC.
The Bulldogs have 16 starters back, including improving quarterback Dak Prescott. He's the key. If he can ramp it up in his junior season these guys could be in business. They have 13 senior starters and quietly posted a Top 20 defense last year.
The schedule is also favorable for the Bulldogs. They only have four SEC road games. One is winnable at Kentucky. The Bulldogs season will be defined by how they perform in home games against A&M, Auburn and Arkansas. That's it. They get A&M after a game against Arkansas in Arlington. And they play Auburn the week after the Tigers face LSU.
The Bulldogs have four guaranteed wins and two guaranteed losses (at LSU and at Alabama). They should beat Kentucky and Vanderbilt. That's six wins right there. They just need two wins from the aforementioned home games and a trip to Ole Miss. I want to say they get there. And I think they could. But they have topped seven wins in the regular season just three times in 10 years. I'd suggest a lukewarm play on the 'under'.
