We're two point favorites now. The Wynn injury throws a big wrench in things. I don't like being favored on the road against a Top 5 team, no matter who's missing.

Lots of tidbits in this preview piece from the Advocate. I'm ready for us to just open up the passing floodgates versus Florida. We often congratulate coaches for sticking with the run in the second half of a game in which it hadn't been working, and they go on to pull out a victory.

Meanwhile, Will Arnold's probably not going to play. That sucks. This means Herman Johnson, the biggest baby born in Louisiana history, will start.

I just feel bad for Mississippi State. To wit, this quote from Les Miles after we shredded them:

"It's nice to beat an opponent and look forward to playing an opponent that we can really get excited about," he said.
