Mississippi State Bulldogs | SEC (West)


Conference Analysis
Win Division (+775), Win Conference (+1550)
SSA Model Pick: None
Joe Moorehead inherits a favorable situation at Mississippi State as there are 17 starters back on this team. Mullen built up a strong program and Moorhead will look to continue Mullen’s success. Mullen was never able to make it to an SEC championship game so don’t expect Moorhead to get their in his first season.

Win Total Analysis
8.5 wins (+120/-140)
SSA Model Pick: Under (Low Confidence)
A new coaching staff means new plays, new practice schedules, and new problems. If Mullen was back you’d expect a 9+ win season from the Bulldogs but that’s not realistic given that there is a new staff.
