Mississippi State’s 2020 upset of LSU was a high-scoring affair, which saw the Bulldogs memorably coming away with a 44-34 victory in Baton Rouge. Saturday’s game looks radically different.

To everyone’s surprise, it’s a defensive battle in Starkville. Here’s a small sample of fans and media members are reacting to the 7-3 first half in LSU’s favor:

Mississippi State is out-gaining the LSU offense but hasn’t been able to turn that production into points. Running Mike Leach’s Air Raid, Will Rogers is 23-of-28 for 160 yards but with an interception. LSU QB Max Johnson is 9-of-16 for 87 yards with a touchdown to Kayshon Boutte and an interception. MSU’s first-drive fumble helped set up LSU’s touchdown.
