Happy Monday, everyone.
The Mississippi State fan base returns to work this week feeling more upbeat than last week after the tough road loss to Texas A&M. The Bulldogs defeated the Troy Trojans 45-17 on Saturday.
But for Mississippi State fans who didn’t catch the action Saturday, here is what you missed:
- The Mississippi State defense absolutely dominated Troy with nine tackles for loss, three sacks and a fumble recovery for a touchdown in the first half on Saturday.
- This week’s AP Poll has four SEC teams ranked in the Top 10, but the Bulldogs remained outside the AP Top 25.
- Much has been made about the Bulldogs lack of rushing attack on offense, but coach Dan Mullen continues to believe in his players. He told Michael Bonner of The Clarion-Ledger on Sunday that the running game will click with more plays.
