One of the biggest upsets of week four was Mississippi State football’s huge win over the defending national champions in the LSU Tigers.
Every week, there are serious contenders from Power Five conferences competing for a national championship as well as pretenders.
This past Saturday, the defending national champions in the No. 6 LSU Tigers were looking to show their legitimate case as a contender for the playoff once again. Their first game in defending the title crown would be against Mississippi State, led by first-year head coach Mike Leach.
Leach was determined to get a hot start for the Bulldogs this 2020 season. He was also determined to install and utilize his air-raid offense efficiently that he used while at Washington State and Texas Tech. To get this hot start with their new offense, they would create some spark for them to stand a chance against the Tigers, who were a 14.5-point favorite.
There was much doubt for the Bulldogs as they were having to utilize their offense despite not having spring football. The only person that didn’t have doubt was Leach as he felt that he had a comfortable scheme for the defending champs.
It took a quarter to get into the game but the Bulldogs were able to find a hot rhythm of efficient production in the end zone. The Bulldogs were able to travel to Baton Rouge and defeat the defending champions in the Tigers 44-34
Here are the biggest overreactions to the Bulldogs’ big win over the sixth-ranked Tigers.
