LSU and Mississippi State play in their SEC opener Saturday from Davis Wade Stadium. Find the game time, TV channel and more watch online info below.
No. 12 LSU (2-0) won its first two games of the season by defeating BYU 27-0 and Chattanooga 45-10. But in Mississippi State (2-0), LSU faces its toughest task yet. The Bulldogs have the top scoring offense in the SEC, averaging 53.0 points per game, and have only allowed two touchdowns all season.
But for every bit of praise you can give to Mississippi State, LSU deserves just as much. Through two games, the Tigers have the nation’s best rushing defense, allowing 31.5 yards per game, and have rushed for an SEC most seven touchdowns. Quarterback Danny Etling has also been impressive, completing 71 percent of his passes for 398 yards and a touchdown.
On top of this, LSU will return preseason All-America outside linebacker Arden Key Saturday after Key missed the Tigers’ first two games rehabbing from his offseason shoulder surgery. In 2016, Key set LSU’s single-season sack record with 12 sacks.
