On the heels of a 2-0 start against lesser competition, Mississippi State will dive into the deep end this week when it hosts No. 12 LSU. The Bulldogs and Tigers are both off to 2-0 starts, and each team has displayed an impressive defense so far. This is the SEC opener for both teams, and will serve as a table-setter for whatever is to unfold the rest of the 2017 season. SEC Country’s Brandon Walker and Andrew Astleford discuss the MSU-LSU game at length and talk about everything else in the world of MSU football in our latest Zaxby’s Sound Off.

Other topics include:

MSU’s defense scored two touchdowns and Nick Fitzgerald got past a shaky start to fuel MSU in a surprisingly easy 57-21 road win over Louisiana Tech in Week 2. Brandon and Andrew break down the win and talk about MSU’s surprising defense, Fitzgerald’s overall game and the maturation of MSU’s offensive line (1:15). It’s beginning to feel a lot like 2014. Three seasons ago, MSU, led by redshirt junior quarterback Dak Prescott and a defense filled with stars, opened the SEC schedule with No. 8 LSU. The Bulldogs sent shockwaves throughout college football that night, earning a 34-29 win to go from unranked into the top 20 before ultimately ascending to No. 1 in the country for the first time in school history. Now, three years later, the Bulldogs, led by redshirt junior quarterback Nick Fitzgerald and a defense filled with stars, prepare to host No. 12 LSU. Will history repeat itself? (3:00) Both teams have flashed elite defensive potential over the first 3 weeks of the season, as LSU enters the showdown ranked No. 5 in total defense nationally. MSU ranks No. 6. The two defenses will both play key roles in this pivotal SEC game, so Brandon and Andrew take a look at both teams to determine which side will have the advantage.
