This weekend’s SEC opener — which comes on the road against Mississippi State in a game that will kick off at 11 a.m. local time — will be a much better test for coach Brian Kelly’s squad.
Here’s what Dodd said.
A get-well game over Grambling (72-10). Jayden Daniels threw five touchdown passes. It’s about to get real in the next three weeks with trips to Mississippi State and Ole Miss sandwiched around a home game with Arkansas.
As Dodd points out, we’ll have a much better idea where this team stands in the SEC pecking order as the Tigers begin conference play with a pair of potentially tricky games.
