The BYU Cougars have won two in a row! Next up, the Mississippi State Bulldogs.

Mississippi State is 2-3 and are looking to bounce back after a tough loss to Auburn. However, BYU isn’t really the easiest or best team to try to right the ship against. Can Dan Mullen’s squad make the trip to LaVell Edwards Stadium and find their feet again against a BYU team that is building momentum?

In addition, Jake and Keith discuss the big road win at Michigan State, Jamaal Williams’ brilliance, the challenges that the Mississippi State Bulldogs present, and Jake’s use of Jake Oldroyd as a personal life success measuring stick.
