Mississippi State’s initial depth chart for its season-opener on Monday featured a surprising amount of experience.

Every starter for the Bulldogs in their game against Southern Miss will be an upperclassmen, meaning several of the team’s key contributors for this season also helped lead Mississippi State to a No. 1 ranking last year.

The offense, led by preseason first-team All-SEC quarterback Dak Prescott, consists of three seniors and eight juniors, while the defense is comprised of five seniors and six juniors.
