Mississippi State will face their first challenge of the season with their first road game of the season. MSU dismantled Charleston Southern in their opening game 49-0 while Louisiana Tech struggled for 3 quarters against Northwestern State before pulling away in the 4th quarter to win 52-24. Many see the opening line too low:

my initial reaction is that that's too low, but don't do anything yet.
Louisiana Tech does have a history of playing MSU close. They took State to OT in 2011 and defeated MSU in their last trip to Ruston. But MSU did take care of Tech in their last meeting in Starkville 45-20.
Mississippi State will take on Louisiana Tech Saturday at 6:30 on CBS Sports Network. Make your plans now if you do not receive that channel.
