Mississippi St. Bulldogs vs. Texas A&M Aggies Preview: For the Record

Mississippi St. Bulldogs vs. Texas A&M Aggies, 3:30 p.m. ET, CBS

I don't really have time to do a full preview on this one, and it's probably just as well. The fact of the matter is that Texas A&M hasn't done poorly against a bad team all year -- and Mississippi State is a bad team -- while Mississippi State hasn't done well against a good team all this year, with the possible exception of the Auburn game -- and Texas A&M is a good team.

If there's a slender hope for the Bulldogs, it basically comes down to this: Their offense is probably better than Texas A&M's defense. If the State defense can do a decent job of containing Johnny Manziel and Co., they have perhaps a 10 percent or so chance of pulling off the upset. But that's not much of a chance, and slowing down Manziel enough to make that count is a tall order.
