College Football - Georgia Tech vs. Mississippi St.

October 01, 2009
College Football Preview and Pick: (25) Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at Mississippi State Bulldogs (Saturday 7:30 ET)

By Black Widow

Anthony Dixon, RB BulldogsMississippi State should have upset LSU last week in a 26-30 home loss, but they'll quickly put it past them and look forward to facing Georgia Tech at home Saturday.

It will be easy for the Bulldogs to get over their loss to the Tigers, especially considering Georgia Tech beat Mississippi State 38-7 last year.

But this is a completely different Bulldogs' team, starting the season 2-2 with a huge upset of Vanderbilt 15-3 two weeks ago.

Now that they've seen the triple option attack of the Yellow Jackets last year, they'll be much better prepared to face it the second time around.

Mississippi State is giving up just 129 rushing yards per game and 3.4 yards per carry thus far, and they've faced primarily running teams such as LSU and Vanderbilt which makes those totals even more impressive.

The Bulldogs are rushing for 204 yards per game and a solid 4.4 yards per rush.

Four turnovers cost the Bulldogs last year in their loss to Georgia Tech, but now playing at home don't expect them to make the same mistakes, especially after turning the ball over 4 times last week against LSU.

This team comes out with a mindset to take care of the ball and to get revenge following their loss to the Yellow Jackets last year.

The Bulldogs are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games as a home underdog.

The Yellow Jackets are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games as a favorite of 3.5-10.0.

Take Mississippi State and the points.

Pick: Mississippi St +6 (-110) available at Sportsbook.com.
