Happy Sunday, everyone.
A week after a disappointing loss at Texas A&M, Mississippi State took care of business at home against Troy.
For the fans who didn’t catch the game Saturday, here is what you missed:
- The Bulldogs pitched a shutout in the first half Saturday and made several big plays on defense. Coach Dan Mullen was pleased with the level of physicality from his team.
- Mississippi State had several big plays on offense Saturday too. Wide receiver Donald Gray had a very impressive 48-yard touchdown grab in the fourth quarter.
- Mississippi State was able to beat Troy 45-17 without quarterback Dak Prescott, who only played the first quarter. Prescott played but was questionable before the game due to a stomach virus.
