LSU has been predominately known as a good rushing offense.
This year the No. 10 Tigers (4-1, 1-1) have been airing it out more than usual and finding success with the passing game.
Senior quarterback Zach Mettenberger has been a big reason for the passing game success. He has shown a good bit of improvement from last season.
The Tigers are ranked fourth in the Southeastern Conference in pass offense with 281.8 yards per game.
Mettenberger is fourth in the conference with 279.6 yards per game. He is second with 13 touchdowns and has thrown just one interception all year.
Mississippi State (2-2, 0-1) is ranked third in the league in pass defense. The Bulldogs are giving up just 189.8 yards per game through the air.
The two teams meet on the gridiron on Saturday with two giants colliding, with LSU's pass offense and MSU's pass defense.
"They've got a great quarterback, great receivers, (and) everybody's good," Bulldog redshirt freshman cornerback Cedric Jiles said.
