The Wildcats will fight hard to try to get one last win in to close the 2019 season, while Mississippi State will host its homecoming weekend this Saturday, with the stadium being packed and eager to win.
Mississippi State’s head coach, Joe Moorhead, hopes to get his offense back on track after last week’s game against Alabama. He hopes that his quarterbacks will be able to make their needed connections to finish off strong on their last regular season game.
Mississippi State has faced some pretty challenging teams earlier in the season, including LSU, Tennessee, Auburn, Kansas State, Texas A&M, Kentucky and are coming off a blowout loss to Alabama.
While this is ACU’s final game of the 2019 season, and the Wildcats are coming off of a tough loss from last Saturday’s game against SLU. Despite falling behind big before halftime and giving away six turnovers, the Wildcats were able to fight back in the second half, closing the gap off of two touchdowns for redshirt sophomore quarterback Sema’J Davis.
Even though the Wildcats faced the hardship of not making the playoffs this year, they are are excited to face a SEC school and eager to show their talents off.
“This game we are going to be thinking about the seniors, playing hard for them,” sophomore Kobe Clark said. “After all, this is a SEC school. A lot of us will be able to show our talents, cause we are a little smaller school, just show other people that we can compete with the bigger schools.”
Kickoff is at 6:30pm at Davis-Wade Stadium at Scott Field, concluding the 2019 season.
