Breaking Down The 2015 Mississippi State Football Schedule

Over the first two months of the 2014 season, the Mississippi State Bulldogs were the best team in college football. After three straight wins over Top-10 opponents, many thought Mississippi State was on its way to the College Football Playoff. A November 15th meeting at Alabama, however, would end Mississippi State’s dream season. Mississippi State dropped a hard-fought 25-20 decision to the Crimson Tide to end their hopes of a perfect season. Mississippi State would lose two of its last three games, including an emotional 31-17 defeat to Ole Miss in the Egg Bowl and a 49-34 defeat to Georgia Tech in the Orange Bowl. Due to his late season struggles, quarterback Dak Prescott vowed to return for his senior season. Prescott, who is arguably the best dual-threat quarterback in college football, threw for 3,449 yards and 27 touchdowns while rushing for 986 yards and 14 touchdowns. Prescott’s top receiver, De’Runnya Wilson will also return. Last season, Wilson led the team in receptions (47), yards (680), and touchdowns (9). Both players will look to rectify the shortcomings from last season.

Entering the 2015 season, Mississippi State will need to replace the production of its top running back, Josh Robinson. Robinson, who rushed for 1,203 yards and 11 touchdowns, opted to enter the NFL Draft. Mississippi State inked 28 total recruits and has the 16th-best recruiting class, which ranks towards the middle of its SEC counterparts. Mississippi State may not be able to get the same types of recruits that Alabama and Auburn does, but the combination of Prescott and Wilson is lethal.
