Welcome to More Cowbell, SEC Country’s daily podcast about Mississippi State sports with host Brandon Walker.
Not many are giving Mississippi State a chance to beat Alabama this weekend. And with good reason. In eight seasons under coach Dan Mullen, MSU hasn’t been very close to breaking through and beating Alabama. But this year presents MSU with its best opportunity against the Tide in years, as MSU is 7-2, at home, and facing an Alabama team that hasn’t had to face a stiff test this season.
So what would a win mean for Dan Mullen? It would be the latest in a string of accomplishments at Mississippi State, and would give his portfolio a marquee win that it has lacked in recent years. More Cowbell host Brandon Walker also comes forward with a deep, dark family secret today.
