In order for Mississippi State to get back on track, senior wideout Stephen Guidry must emerge as a primary offensive weapon.

With 16 receptions for 211 yards and three touchdowns on the year, Guidry’s numbers should be higher given his skillset. Standing at 6-foot-4, 200 pounds, Guidry can sky. Additionally, his speed will have to be on full display if the Bulldogs hope to leave Kyle Field with their fourth win.

In a losing effort to the Tigers, Guidry led the team in receiving yards with 98. Freshman quarterback Garrett Shrader, a dual threat, has become comfortable with Guidry as his number one. Given Guidry’s height and Shrader’s arm, the Aggies could be in for a long day.

As Mississippi State’s offense prides itself on the run, look for the Bulldog receivers to have their numbers called. Expect Guidry to post at least 100 yards and a score. As Texas A&M will do their best to neutralize running back Kylin Hill, there is every reason for Guidry to make a statement in College Station.
