College Football Top 25 Preview- Countdown #25




We are about 25 days away from college football’s first weekend so it is time to get some preview work in.

Mississippi State #25

They started so well last season with a 9-0 start and was the #1 team in the nation for awhile. Coach Dan Mullen then saw his team finish at 1-2 and a loss in the Orange Bowl to Georgia Tech 49-34.

So now they are attempting to repeat that start and use senior quarterback Dak Prescott to build on his 41 touchdowns and 4.435 yards from last season. One thing that will hurt them is losing three members of their offensive line but will count on a trio of receivers to score points. Fred Ross, De’Runnya Wilson and freshman Dontavian Lee will be the target of many passes from Prescott.

On the defensive side of the ball Taveze Calhoun and Will Redmond return to the corner spots. Gerri Green, freshman middle linebacker will make the loss of Benardrick McKinney to the NFL much easier to take. He is 243 pounds and can run the 40-yard dash in 4.57.

The schedule is tough. Maybe it is even brutal. There may be as many as six teams on their schedule that are better than they are. Week 2 finds them hosting LSU and then later in the season they are playing Auburn and Texas A&M back-to-back. In November they will take the field against Missouri and Alabama at home on face Arkansas and Ole Miss on the road.
