Blog – Pregame: UT Martin at No. 1 Mississippi State

Records: MSU (8-0) UTM (5-5)

Kickoff: 3 p.m.

TV: SEC Network

Stadium: Davis Wade Stadium

QB matchup: MSU junior Dak Prescott (Completed 132-of-216 passes for 2,205 yards, 16 TDs, 7 INTs, 725 rush yards, 10 TDs, 2 catches for 35 yards, 1 TD) vs. UTM junior Jarod Neal (Completed 142-of-214 passes for 1,681 yards, 13 TDs, 6 INTs, 175 rush yards, 4 TDs)

Officials: Referee – Marc Curles, Umpire – Johnny Hibbertt, Head Linesman – Tim Sistrunk, Line Judge – Kirk Lewis, Field Judge – Jabir Walker, Side Judge – Richard Rooker, Back Judge – Scott Vaughn, Alternate – Jimmy Russell, Observer – Mike New, Replay Official – Mike McGinnis

One big thing to watch: This should be a game full of backups. If MSU gets out to a big lead, they will pull the starters and play many of the reserve players. That will be key looking ahead to next week’s game at Alabama.

Gameday surprise: MSU senior WR Jameon Lewis will not play. This is his third game to miss this season.

Pregame song(s):

It is Homecoming and this song is all about coming home. Robert Earl Keen is also pretty good with this song being one of my favorites. I hope you enjoy.
