Mississippi State Prediction Thread

War Eagle!

This week we have an abbreviated prediction thread time period. All apologies, but considering we have a Thursday night game during a week with a Monday off, time is short (just ask the football team!).

Congratulations to commenter Sparkey, whose prediction of 45-24 was the closest of anyone (9 total points away from the final). Sparkey gets to be the first name on this week's week-by-week prediction thread winners list. Congratulations!

Week 1 (Arkansas State): Sparkey

As for this Thursday's game, Mississippi State's impressive 49-7 win over Memphis has me extremely nervous. I think Dan Mullen is a heck of a coach, and the fact that it's a road Thursday night game is cause for concern. Auburn hasn't allowed fewer than 20 points on defense since September 5, 2009 against Louisiana Tech (that's right, it's been 13 straight games of at least 20 points allowed). Expect the Bulldogs to run up the yards AND the points in this one. We can only hope that War Cam Eagle and company can match them on the scoreboard. It's amazing to think about how this game could turn out compared to the last time we ventured into Starkville.

Just as last week, entries are accepted up to one hour before kickoff (5:30 Central on THURSDAY). Good luck to all predictors! As for mine......

Auburn 48
Mississippi State 41

We're all just trying to have a good time here. Don't be a jerk, and we won't have a problem with you. War Eagle!
