LSU leads the series 63-33-3, however two MSU victories were taken away in '75 and '76. This will be the 66th meeting in Baton Rouge.

This has been a very streaky series for both schools. One of the streaks was playing the game in Baton Rouge every year from 1934-1957. Fortunately, State managed to win 11 of those games.

Steaks of at least 3 wins in a row

LSU: 1907-09 (3)
MSU: 1910-12 (3)
MSU: 1917, 19-20 (3)
MSU: 1922-23, 26 (3)
LSU: 1927-29 (3)
LSU: 1931-38 (8)
MSU: 1952-54 (3)
LSU: 1958-62 (5)
LSU: 1964-73 (10)
MSU: 1974-76 (3)
MSU: 1980-84 (5)
LSU: 1985-89 (5)
LSU: 1992-98 (7)
LSU: 2000-present (12)

That makes only one win in the last 20 years for Mississippi State. In LSU's present streak, only two games have come down to the final minute: Tyson Lee's tipped passed at the goal line in 2009 and the overtime heartbreaker at Death Valley in 2000. The current losing streak to LSU is the longest since breaking Bama's 15 game stranglehold in 1996.

MSU has actually won 18 times in Baton Rouge...but not since 1991.
