Upset Alert Week 10
My upset alert this week is Auburn over New Mexico State. In all seriousness, I am picking Mississippi State over Texas A&M. Texas A&M is favored by 6 ½ even though Mississippi State is at home. I think that Mississippi State will bounce back from a tough loss to Alabama.
Mississippi State is 63rd in passing yards, 60th in rushing yards, 43rd in points for, and 15th in points against .They are led by quarterback Tyler Russell. Russell has 1742 yards, 15 touchdowns, and 2 interceptions. He has a completion percentage of 58.8 and a QBR of 141.1. Last game against Alabama, he went 15 for 30 and racked up 169 yards. He threw 1 interception and had a QBR of 90.7. LaDarius Perkins has 762 yards and 8 touchdowns on 140 attempts. Last game he got 38 yards on 15 carries. Chad Bumphis leads the team in receiving. He has 30 catches, 486 yards, and 6 touchdowns. Alabama was able to completely shut down this offense but I don’t think that this is going to happen this week.
Texas A&M is 19th in passing yards, 14th in rushing yards, 3rd in points for, and 34th in points against. Johnny Manziel leads the team in passing and rushing. He has 2216 yards, 16 touchdowns, and 6 interceptions. Johnny Football has been sacked 16 times and a QBR of 148.7. He has 793 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns on 117 carries. Last game he went 16 for 23 and racked up 260 yards. He got 2 passing touchdowns, 193.2 QBR, and 3 touchdowns on the ground. Mike Evans leads the team in receiving. Evans has 47 receptions, 705 yards, and 2 touchdowns. Last game he caught 5 passes for 80 yards. I think that Mississippi State will be able to slow down Manziel which will really hurt this offense.
Mississippi State will come out ready to play and have a huge game. Texas A&M will give State a good game but they won’t be able to pull off the win. Mississippi State will shut down Manziel and win this one 27-21.
