What you need to know about Mississippi State

The Bulldogs had the look of a seasoned Mike Leach squad as they piled up massive passing numbers against the defending champions last week. Quarterback K.J. Costello, a transfer from Stanford, threw for an eye-popping 623 yards and five touchdowns in that 44-34 win in Baton Rouge. 

Receiver Osirus Mitchell was Costello’s favorite target as he put together an impressive 7-183-2 receiving line. After putting up big numbers on the ground in 2019, running back Kylin Hill also proved to be a great target out of the backfield, catching eight passes for 158 yards and a score. While the offense drew many of the headlines, MSU’s defense also got after LSU with seven sacks on the afternoon. Mississippi State (+16.5) covered the spread with plenty of room to spare and returned a huge payout on the money line for backers in that matchup as well. 

What you need to know about Arkansas

The Razorbacks had the lead for a half against Georgia, but ultimately fell 37-10 in last week’s debut for coach Sam Pittman. Georgia outscored Arkansas 32-3 in the second half. Quarterback Feleipe Franks, a Florida transfer, had mixed results in his first game under center for Arkansas. He did throw for 200 yards and a touchdown, but was also picked off twice. 

He didn’t get much help from a run game that only posted 77 yards. Pittman will need to help Arkansas clean up several areas where it was sloppy in the opener. The Razorbacks picked up 10 penalties, gave up three turnovers and were just 3-of-14 on third-down conversion attempts.
