The Jacksonville State Gamecocks are no pushover, as they've been very impressive offensively out of the gate, and they already have road wins over Richmond and Chattanooga. In fact, the Gamecocks beat the Spiders by 33 points, which isn't something you see everyday. The Mississippi State Bulldogs haven't exactly played anybody yet, but they've been very sharp defensively and are starting to become a team you want to back at home. If we were getting a few more points, I'd probably lean Jacksonville State, but Miss State should be able to cover the reasonable line.
