Know your enemy- Mississippi State Bulldogs

We travel to Starkville to open up SEC play against the fighting Bulldogs of Mississippi State. By sheer coincidence (cough cough) Dee Bost is back with the team as well as Renardo Sidney. Here's an article on Sidney's SEC debut.

Stats

Ravern Johnson comes into the game as the SEC leading scorer. With the addition of the guys above I suspect the offense will kick it up a notch. Kodi Augustus leads the team in boards (8.1) and will be a problem inside (with Sidney... as long as Sidney don't brawl with his teammates).

State comes in on a 2 game losing streak while we're on a 3 game winning streak. State has been idle for a week.

Prediction: The movable force vs the resistable object... something has got to stand up. My guess is M$U... we haven't won on the road and I can't think of a good reason to believe we will today. M$U by 12.

Game time is 4PM EST (3PM CST) on the SEC Network.

Sorry for the brief preview... didn't have time yesterday to think one out completely.
