Not that all 50+ players aren’t important to any given team, but these three players for MSU are most concerning, especially considering the games they had last year against the Aggies.
In last year’s contest, Brown went from backup to world destroyer, as he recorded three interceptions of A&M’s Kenny Hill. Since then he’s gone to become a starter while leading Mississippi State in tackles and just won SEC Defensive Player of the Week.
MSU’s do-it-all quarterback burned A&M last year for five total scores—three of which came on the ground. He also completed 77 percent of his passes en route to a 48-31 win over the Aggies. MSU’s offense starts and ends with Prescott and if he get’s going, the Aggies could be in for a long one.
Jefferson was another pesky player from last year’s game. The defensive end had 1.5 sacks to go along with four QB hurries in the win and has picked up where he left off last year. 23 tackles, 7.5 for loss and three sacks so far should make him high priority for Texas A&M. Kyle Allen has been sacked already nine times this season and Jefferson would love to add to his already growing totals.
