Zach Arnett and the Mississippi State football program do have some relatively easy contests on their schedule. Here are the easiest.
While things won’t always be easy for Zach Arnett and the Mississippi State Bulldogs, there are certainly several manageable games on the 2023 Mississippi State football schedule. Not every game is against a team like the Alabama Crimson Tide or the LSU Tigers.
Some games are far more manageable than either of those contests.
And so, here are the five easiest games that the Mississippi State Bulldogs will have on their schedule this season:
No. 5: Mississippi State football vs. Arkansas Razorbacks
This game isn’t on this list because it’s inherently going to be an easy win for the Mississippi State Bulldogs. This game is on this list because there are a number of toss up sort of contests that the Bulldogs have on their schedule and this one happens to land right after a bye week.
Seriously, that’s it. I’m not taking anything away from Arkansas here, I just like that the Bulldogs get this one after a week of rest.
The Razorbacks could conceivably be a pretty good team next year, but they’ve got several question marks that they’ll have to figure out (most notably with how they’ll perform with brand new offensive and defensive coordinators.
Arkansas replaced Kendal Briles and his veer-and-shoot with Dan Enos, who has been under Mike Locksley’s tutelage at Maryland. Enos has been underwhelming at some of his previous offensive coordinator stops, but maybe it’ll work out this time?
The other games that could have been in this spot are MSU’s contest with the Kentucky Wildcats (but that’s sandwiched between road trips to Auburn and College Station) and the Bulldogs’ road game against Auburn (does anyone really know what the Tigers will look like in their first season under Hugh Freeze?).
You could make equally strong cases for either of those games being here and I’d hear you out.
