Flynn takes over powerhouse LSU squad at Mississippi State

Aug 30, 2007 - 10:25 PM No. 2 LSU at Mississippi St 8:00 pm EDT

STARKVILLE, Mississippi (Ticker) -- At long last, Matt Flynn will get a chance to show off his skills at Louisiana State.

Flynn will be behind center for the second-ranked Tigers when they open their season at Mississippi State in a Southeastern Conference West Division matchup on Thursday.

A fifth-year senior who has made just one prior start for LSU, Flynn will be taking over for JaMarcus Russell, who left school a year early after leading the Tigers to an 11-2 record and a Sugar Bowl rout of Notre Dame. Russell was selected first overall in the NFL draft by the Oakland Raiders.

While the Tigers return six starters from an offense that ranked 11th nationally last year, they bring back eight starters, including standout senior defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey, from a nasty defense that ranked third in fewest yards allowed (242.77) and fourth in fewest points allowed (12.62).

Mississippi State, meanwhile, has failed to develop in its first three years under Sylvester Croom, the first black head coach in the SEC, winning only nine of 34 games.

Last year, the Bulldogs went 3-9, including just 1-7 in the SEC.

The Bulldogs were especially anemic on offense last year, ranking 104th out of 119 Division I-A teams in rushing (95.17) and 103rd in total offense (286.83). One bright spot is senior Tony Burks, who led the SEC in yards per catch (24.3) in 2006.

LSU has won the last seven meetings between the squads, including a 48-17 home rout last year.
