It will be baptism by fire for the Mississippi State secondary come Saturday.
The Bulldogs open the season against one of the better offenses in the country in No. 13 (Associated Press) Oklahoma State in Houston, Texas.
MSU lost several members of it's secondary from last year's squad including cornerbacks Johnthan Banks and Darius Slay.
The young and inexperienced secondary for the Bulldogs will be tested early.
"It's a great challenge for our guys," MSU head coach Dan Mullen said on Wednesday's Southeastern Conference teleconference. "We have some young talented players. They're obviously going to be tested in the secondary very, very early. With their first game coming in, there's not much of time for them to take their time, learn the ropes and figure out what game day is all about. We have a lot of guys that are going to be playing their first game for us."
