Mississippi State LB Skinner out for Texas A&M; Aggies' Ogbuehi likely in

Mississippi State linebacker Deontae Skinner will miss Saturday's home game against Texas A&M on CBS, according to a source.

Skinner is one of the Bulldogs' best defensive players with a team-leading 50 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss, one sack and one interception. The Bulldogs are hopeful Skinner won't miss more than one game.

The Bulldogs (4-4, 1-3 SEC) have lost several players from the two-deep this season under Dan Mullen, who has gone to a bowl game in each of the last three years but faces a tough November stretch -- at A&M, Alabama, at Arkansas, Ole Miss.

The Aggies, meanwhile, are expecting to play with talented right tackle Cedric Ogbuehi, who has missed time the past two weeks with a groin injury.
