The Mississippi State Bulldogs (4–2) will host the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs (4–2) at Davis Wade Stadium on Saturday. 

Mississippi State will try to keep its winning ways going after blowing out Troy 45–17 last week. Quarterback Nick Fitzgerald stepped in for a sick Dak Prescott, who threw only six passes on the day before coming out. He completed 6 of 7 passes for 141 yards and two touchdowns. On the season, Prescott has thrown for 1,353 yards and eight touchdowns without an interception. 

Louisiana Tech comes into the game on a three-game winning streak after edging out UTSA in a 34–31 win. Quarterback Jeff Driskel finished the game with over 300 yards passing for the third time this season, going 28-for-44 with 351 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. Running back Jarred Craft added a rushing touchdown to go with 72 yards on 19 carries.
