Why Tech Can Win
Tech hung around with Mississippi State’s high-powered offense, why couldn’t they with SMU’s? If the Tech team that showed up to Starkville takes the field tomorrow, the Bulldogs could walk away with an upset victory like the one that barely fell through their grasp two weeks ago.
Why Tech Can Lose
If Tech can win by playing how they did against Mississippi State, they can lose by playing as they did against Southeastern. Just like the Lions, the Mustangs will air the ball out a lot, and Tech may not have an answer in the defensive backfield.
