On second-and-goal at the Mississippi State six-yard line, a bad snap got away from Louisiana Tech quarterback J'Mar Smith.

The attendance marked the second largest in the history of the stadium, trailing only the 28,714 fans at LA Tech's game vs. then-NLU in 1997.

A mere nine years ago, Mississippi State walked off the field at Louisiana Tech with a loss in its opening game of the season. "I hate the mistakes that we made".

It was a nice win for Mississippi State against a consistently good Group of Five team. The defensive line is led by its best player, tight end Jaylon Ferguson.

While Mayfield and his teammates downplay the revenge factor, they haven't forgotten the humiliation of last year's meeting. Kick-off time for this contest is set for 7:30 pm ET, with live online streaming and television coverage.

As you can assume, the drive didn't result in a touchdown for Louisiana Tech.

Well, there was one unusual part of the play: it was on its own seven-yard line.

Louisiana Tech, which also played an FCS member, rolled up 497 yards of total offense last week and boasts a bit more offensive firepower than Charleston Southern. "Everyone is in different positions", Mullen said. "We have to take some big steps now and between week one and week two". I thought our defense competed. "We have to find a way to go out there and compete with an excellent football team". "He's ready to go play physically". Miss State led 50-14. LA Tech scored two plays later and it was 9-0. Tech's secondary rebounded and allowed just 204 passing yards the rest of the game. Morgan tried to scoop it up but couldn't, instead inadvertently kicking the ball downfield all the way to Louisiana Tech's 7, where receiver Cee Jay Powell finally corralled it.

"The defense did my job about half the night for me", Fitzgerald said. We get down there another time, turn the ball over, fumble, they score with it. Freshman tailback Kylin Hill added 62 yards and his first career touchdown. However, the Bulldogs completed just 13-of-30 passes on the night for 163 yards.
