COLLEGE FOOTBALL PREVIEW: #47 MISSISSIPPI STATE

OFFENSE

Tyler Russell has bided his time, dutifully doing as asked. The past two years, he’s shared the position with Chris Relf, playing in an offense that at times was an awkward fit for his abilities. Russell, a fourth-year junior, was the Mississippi Gatorade Player of the Year as a senior at Meridian High School, and he’s long been expected to give MSU the kind of passing attack it’s not seen since … well, ever. Russell must improve his completion rate, which is 55.1 percent over two seasons. He’s also overcoming a sprained MCL that kept him out of the Music City Bowl win over Wake Forest.

Nearly all the receivers return, although none has proved to be a game-breaker. Seniors Chad Bumphis, Arceto Clark and Chris Smith have been productive, but redshirt freshman Joe Morrow (6'4", 205 pounds) could give the Bulldogs the type of downfield threat they have lacked in recent years.
