Zach Arnett’s Mississippi State football team will be without two key contributors vs. the Aggies as this horrendous season continues to be awful.
While the vast majority of issues the Mississippi State football team has experienced this season can’t be pinned on the Bulldogs’ injury issues, it’s clear that MSU has seen some pretty bad luck on the injury front this year.
And now, as the Mississippi State Bulldogs get set to meet up with the Texas A&M Aggies on the road in College Station, MSU’s offense took another huge hit as the Bulldogs will be without Woody Marks once again, according to Brett McMurphy.
That means Kevin Barbay’s job just got that much tougher as the Bulldogs are also without starting quarterback Will Rogers once again.
MSU is extremely shorthanded headed into this SEC West matchup.
Mississippi State football will be without Woody Marks, Will Rogers as Bulldogs face Texas A&M Aggies
Early on this season, even though it seemed as if the offense was being limited and potential impacted by some sort of external factor, it still looked like Marks would have a huge role to play within the Bulldogs’ offense.
But, as we’ve seen, Marks has been dinged up more this year than he was in previous seasons (and he occasionally had to leave the field for injury issues earlier on in his career). MSU attempted to play its star running back despite his injuries earlier this season, but that definitely hasn’t worked out for MSU and Marks this year.
This could certainly spell problems for a Mississippi State football team that desperately needs to get some wins if it’s going to make it to a bowl game this season. Arnett’s been facing a ton of external pressure from MSU fans and a loss to the Texas A&M Aggies will almost certainly end the Bulldogs’ bowl hopes (and a 13 season streak of making it to a bowl game).
So, what will MSU do? How much will Arnett enable Barbay to run his offense? Will we see Chris Parson and Seth Davis get the opportunities they probably deserve?
