Ah, the game we dread. The annual matchup with LSU. For nearly a decade and a half, the Tigers have been a source of extreme frustration for Mississippi State (among others). We've suffered blowouts (2007), and we've suffered the close heartbreak (2009), but most of all, we've just suffered. Is this the year that State breaks through? Can the maroon and white State school overcome the dominant purple and gold one? It hasn't happened since 1999, but tonight, we'll go out and try yet again to take down the Tigers, and bring home a win in the heated SEC west series.

Hail State.
