Posted November 09, 2012 on AP on Fox
No. 9 LSU and No. 23 Mississippi State meet at a time when both are trying to move past missing out on the Southeastern Conference title. Still, there is plenty at stake when they meet Saturday night in Tiger Stadium. LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger says the Tigers have to realize the season is not over. He says getting to 10 wins and a major bowl still would represent a major accomplishment. Both teams can reach the 10-victory plateau in the regular season only by winning their final three games. After this weekend, LSU (7-2, 3-2 SEC) finishes against Mississippi and Arkansas. The Bulldogs (7-2, 3-2) will close their schedule with Arkansas and Ole Miss. LSU has won 12 straight in the series.
