jordan danberry texas a&m 19

Mississippi State's Jordan Danberry will try to slow down Chennedy Carter of Texas A&M today if Carter returns from an ankle injury. 

No. 8 Mississippi State is coming off a decisive 17-point win at No. 23 Tennessee on Thursday, but faces another top 25 battle today.

The Bulldogs (21-3, 9-1 SEC) welcome No. 16 Texas A&M (18-4, 6-3) to town for a noon tip on ESPN.

MSU coach Vic Schaefer has won six-straight over his alma mater and former boss Gary Blair in the series, including a 92-64 victory in College Station last season with Andra Espinoza-Hunter pouring in a career-high 24 points.

Texas A&M has been off since falling at LSU 59-58 last Sunday. Chennedy Carter has missed the past six games with a sprained left ankle but Schaefer is expecting the Aggies’ star guard to play this afternoon.

Carter leads Texas A&M, averaging 20.6 points per game, and scored 28 against State last season.
