Mississippi St hits rough stretch of games
STARKVILLE - Mississippi State has won two straight games and is in relatively good health heading into November.
That momentum is nice for the Bulldogs, because the schedule is about to get very difficult, with No. 14 South Carolina, No. 12 Texas A&M and No. 1 Alabama looming in the next three weeks.
Mississippi State (4-3, 1-2 Southeastern Conference) travels to face the Gamecocks (6-2, 4-2) on Saturday in Columbia, S.C.
Bulldogs' coach Dan Mullen says quarterback Tyler Russell is "expected to play" following an ankle injury in Thursday's 28-22 victory over Kentucky.
Mississippi State's Jameon Lewis has become one of the SEC's most diverse playmakers. He's had a rushing, receiving and passing touchdown in two different games, the first time a player has done that at the FBS level since 2008.
