Blog – Pregame: Alcorn State at Mississippi State (with video)

Records: MSU (0-1), ASU (1-0)

Kickoff: 2:30 p.m.


Stadium: Davis Wade Stadium

QB matchup: MSU sophomore Dak Prescott vs. ASU sophomore John Gibbs Jr.


One big thing to watch: MSU QB: Senior starting quarterback Tyler Russell is out after taking a hit and suffering a concussion in week one. Dak Prescott will get his first career start. Prescott should have a good day against the Braves, but it will be interesting to see.

Gameday surprise: The Bulldogs are thinner than originally thought. Josh Robinson will start at running back for LaDarius Perkins. Ben Beckwith will start at right guard for Justin Malone. Cedric Jiles will start at cornerback for Jamerson Love. Chris Jones will start at defensive tackle for P.J. Jones. Dee Arrington will start at safety for Nickoe Whitley. Junior linebacker Ferlando Bohanna who missed last week with a concussion will not play again today.
