2022 Mississippi State football predictions: ESPN FPI predicts 2022 schedule

The 2022 college football season is just around the corner and the means Mike Leach and the Mississippi State Bulldogs will be looking to build upon the success they were able to find during the 2021 Mississippi State football season. While 2021 wasn’t always a perfect year, Leach and the Bulldogs showed plenty of promise during several stretches.

The Bulldogs were able to improve from 4-7 in 2020 to 7-6 in 2021. It would be reasonable to expect some more improvement as the Bulldogs head in to the 2022 season. Just how much improvement is a matter of what someone deems to be a reasonable standard of success for Leach and the Bulldogs.

How many games will the Bulldogs win this season? Well, let’s take a look at what ESPN’s Football Power Index has to say on the matter.

Even with everything that goes into these projections, there’s a ton of unpredictable about all of this. Things will change on a weekly basis due to any number of factors, including injuries and the whole human element about this sport.

That said, these things are generally pretty impressive with the way they’re able to analyze and predict what could happen.
