Mississippi State Bulldogs

All the Mississippi State Bulldogs have to do on Monday is to stay on course. They hope to continue their mastery over the Cardinals to notch their fourth win. The Bulldogs averages 27.8 points and 226.9 rushing yards in the regular season and are hoping to sustain that success. Garrett Shrader will be at the front once more, joining hands with Kylin Hill. A concern for Mississippi State is their defense. They are giving up 28.1 points per game, numbers they cannot afford to give Louisville.

Players to watch:

G. Shrader QB (88 CMP 153 ATT 1170 YDS 57.5 CMP% 7.6 AVG 47 LNG 8 TD 5 INT 15 SACK -84 SYL 132.5 RTG 113 ATT 587 YDS 5.2 AVG 49 LNG 6 TD), K. Hill RB (235 ATT 1347 YDS 5.7 AVG 62 LNG 10 TD), N.

Louisville Cardinals

The Cardinals should give the Bulldogs stiff competition offensively. Louisville will rely on the duo of QB Micale Cunningham and RB Javian Hawkins, both thriving in the ground game. Chatarius Atwell also deserves a close watch. In the last five games, the receiver amassed 1,129 receiving yards, 12 touchdowns and four 100-yard reception. Defensively, Louisville needs to do better. They are allowing opponents to score 33.8 points per game, numbers that the Bulldogs may easily exploit.
