    Checking out the NCAA team statistics reveals a startling defensive mismatch.

    There are 117 teams in Division I. These are the national team rankings:

    Pass Efficiency Defense -- LSU=#2 State=#116
    Scoring Defense -- LSU=#5 State=#109
    Total Defense -- LSU=#8 State=#116

    State can't stop LSU. We can surely stop State.

    something else interesting about MSU.

    Their key position players: Fant, Turner, and Jenkins are some of the top overall statistical players in the SEC (based on Fantasy Football points)

    Fant is the #2 QB (behind Eli) -
    Turner is the #3 RB (behind Shaud Williams and Cedric Cobbs)
    Jenkins in teh #1 WR (and tied for #1 overall statistical SEC player with Manning).

    Of course, this hasn't added up to many W's on teh field . .but I thought it was interesting.

    I have a feeling those numbers will drop significantly vs. LSU this weekend.

    Yeah one thing that scares me is Miss. St ability to put up some points..They were down 28-0 to both Oregon and Houston and ended up making it respectable only losing by 7-10 in each, granted it probably was against their second team..But I do believe that LSU will be able to limit their Offensive production and win easily

    LSU 42
    MSU 13
