Will Rogers Jo'Quavious Marks Mississippi State football Southern Miss Source
Mississippi State football seniors Will Rogers and Jo'Quavious Marks expected to return against Southern Miss after recent injuries.
Mississippi State football is expected to have two key seniors back in action for their upcoming game against Southern Miss. Quarterback Will Rogers and running back Jo'Quavious Marks are both expected to be available, according to a reliable source. It's important to note that these are unofficial reports, as official lineups have not yet been announced.
Rogers has been sidelined since sustaining a left shoulder injury in a game against Western Michigan on October 7. During his absence, Mississippi State struggled, winning only one out of four games, including three consecutive losses in conference play. The team's latest defeat was a 51-10 loss to Texas A&M, which ultimately led to the firing of coach Zach Arnett.
In the absence of Rogers, the team turned to former Vanderbilt transfer Mike Wright and freshman Chris Parson at the quarterback position. However, the offense struggled, averaging only 8.25 points per game in the four games without Rogers, compared to an average of 30.2 points in the six games he started.
Rogers, who currently ranks third on the SEC's all-time passing list with 11,964 yards, will be a crucial addition to the team's offense. His return is highly anticipated, especially given his impressive track record as a passer. Marks, who has been out since the team's win at Arkansas, also brings a significant contribution to the team's running game, averaging 71.4 rushing yards per game.
The upcoming game against Southern Miss will be an important opportunity for Mississippi State to regain momentum and finish the season on a strong note. The return of Rogers and Marks will undoubtedly provide a much-needed boost to the team's offense. Fans and supporters are eagerly anticipating their return to the field.
