Broadcast Information

The game is at 11 a.m. CT and can be watched on ESPN.

What to Watch For

Isaiah Zuber against a familiar foe

Though he has not been much of a factor for Mississippi State offensively, Zuber is due for a big day. Whether or not Zuber reaches 100 yards, expect multiple touchdowns. Look for Zuber to be all over the field and lined up in many formations.

As running back Kylin Hill will garner most of the Wildcats’ attention, the Bulldogs receiving corps are sure to have their way. While Zuber prides himself on speed and athleticism, it will be his game that potentially elevates Mississippi State to 3-0.

Erroll Thompson controlling the pace

Thompson, a proven linebacker capable of leading his position group, looks to pick up right where he left off. Already with 14 tackles on the year, Thompson is likely to rack up at least 10 in today’s contest. The 6-foot-1, 250-pound junior should be an imposing threat and get to Wildcat quarterback Skylar Thompson, who threw for 151 yards and two touchdowns in last week’s 52-0 shutout over Bowling Green.

Kansas State’s offense will be running on all cylinders. But Mississippi State’s defense will ultimately be two much. Look for Thompson to put a hat on the opposition and set the tone early.

Prediction

Mississippi State gets by Kansas State 38-24
