We're back, boys and girls, for week 3, and State's first road test of the 2012 season. Tonight, our Bulldogs travel to Troy, Alabama to take on the Trojans, a team that although they are not as good as they have been in years past, will certainly provide MSU with a challenge at home, in front of an amped up crowd.

Here is your open thread for the game, so come chat with us about MSU versus Troy and let's all pray that State can avoid the dubious trap game. #ITSATRAP
