4 Non-conference games...need to win them all. 4 SEC home games. 4 SEC road games. The road games are at one extreme or the other...the two worst teams in the league and the two best. The home games are all winnable.
MSU is 4-1 at home vs. SEC teams ranked outside the top 15 under Mullen. Out of these four, maybe Arkansas will be ranked that high. These are all swing games.
The key to the team is the offensive line. The key to the season is these four home games. State has the schedule to accomplish something special...it will all come down to what happens at Davis Wade.
