Mississippi St. already with 2 SEC losses

By David Brandt/The Associated Press

STARKVILLE — Mississippi State’s football season has already hit a significant snag.

Two SEC games have produced two stinging losses for the Bulldogs. The latest was Thursday night, when No. 3 LSU beat No. 25 Mississippi State 19-6 at Davis Wade Stadium.

Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen was disappointed after the loss, but also tried to keep perspective that LSU appears to be one of the nation’s best teams.

Even so, there wasn’t much other way to say it: LSU dominated Mississippi State in almost every phase.

In some good timing, Mississippi State has a non-conference game against Louisiana Tech next week, which might allow Mullen to work out some of the issues that have plagued the Bulldogs. Mississippi State’s next conference game is against Georgia on Oct. 1.
