Texas A&M vs. Mississippi State 2012 previews, TV schedule, odds and game time

Marvin Gentry-US PRESSWIRE

A pair of SEC West contenders will square off on Saturday afternoon in Starkville, Mississippi. Head here for national college football coverage all day Saturday and beyond.

Following a 31-point loss to Alabama, the Mississippi State Bulldogs will return home this Saturday to host a high-powered Texas A&M squad in a SEC West showdown.

Dan Mullen's Bulldogs coughed the ball up three times and could only muster a paltry 2.2 yards per rush average against the Tide, and will hardly have much margin for error against a Texas A&M offense that averages 45.5 points per game. Held out of the endzone by Saban's defense to halt a seven-game touchdown streak, Mississippi State junior tailback LaDarius Perkins will be in search of a bounce-back performance in Week 10.

The Aggies will enter after beating a woeful Auburn team, 63-21, last week to climb back above .500 in conference play. Freshman quarterback Johnny Manziel racked five total touchdowns in a game for the fourth time in his career in the victory, and continues to shred opposing defenses through the air and on the ground.

Game time, TV channel: 12 p.m. ET, ESPN

Online streaming video: Watch ESPN

Spread: Texas A&M -6.5
