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.
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.
