Ed Orgeron is well aware of what Mississippi State did with its Air Raid offense last year in Tiger Stadium, but more recently, how the Bulldogs deployed it last week in a loss at Memphis.

“That’s their DNA,” Orgeron said Wednesday on the SEC coaches media teleconference. “We’re planning for it. He has a quick release, very accurate, has a good feel for the offense. … They’ve got them a good quarterback. … (Leach) knows how to attack coverages. … He’s a great coach. He has a new quarterback and he’s had a lot of success.”

State last week in a 31-29 loss at Memphis passed for 419 yards, and completed 50-of-67 passes.

Orgeron also updated the status of 2 key running backs, and said Ty Davis-Price would play following a minor injury. He received treatment on Tuesday. As for John Emery, Orgeron said, “he’s been practicing, he’s been ready to go. He’s been working like everybody else. … As soon as they tell us he’s clear, he’s gonna play.”
