2022 Mississippi State football predictions: ESPN FPI favors Bulldogs over Memphis Tigers

As Mike Leach and his Mississippi State football team get set for the 2022 season, they’re getting ready to take on one foe that provided the Bulldogs with an incredibly infuriating and controversial road loss in 2021. The Bulldogs will start the season by hosting the Memphis Tigers and this is a great opportunity to overcome the insanity that was the disastrous 2021 road loss to Memphis.

As it turns out, ESPN’s Football Power Index is expecting the Bulldogs to come out on top of this game. Out of the 20,000 simulations that ESPN’s mythical computers go through, Mississippi State is favored to win this game.

When I note that ESPN’s FPI is favoring the Mississippi State football here, I’m not necessarily mentioning that in a betting sense like with point spreads and the like, but rather that ESPN’s magical computer math number simulation projections are simply expecting the Bulldogs to win this game against the Memphis Tigers.

According to ESPN’s Football Power Index and its many projections, Mississippi State should win this game. The Bulldogs get a nice little 77.3% here on this game. That’s not bad.
