One big thing to watch: MSU is looking to win five of the last six matchups in this rivalry. The Bulldogs are also looking for a Southeastern Conference Western Division title, but need to win and have Auburn beat Alabama in the Iron Bowl.

Pregame song(s):

The line “and you don’t go writing hot checks down in Mississippi,” is one of the best. Since this is the battle for Mississippi, I found it appropriate. It’s also a good song. I hope you enjoy.
