LSU has only been challenged once in its first three games of the season.

This year MSU head coach Dan Mullen understands it will take a full 60 minutes of play to come out on top.

ACKERMAN â€“ At the center of every football game stands one man â€“ the quarterback.
For Choctaw County, that man is Jamarcus Bradley and the Chargers would not have it any other way.
