After taking down the reigning national champion LSU to kick off the 2020 season, Mississippi State was in for a trap game against Arkansas.
Turnovers tell most of the story with the Bulldogs losing that battle 4-2 as they fell short of a second-half comeback in their 21-14 loss to the Razorbacks.
In fact, it was D’Iberville alum Jaden Walley that fumbled a fair catch punt late in the fourth quarter to go along with three K.J. Costello picks. Head Coach Mike Leach said, “It’s one of those things that as a coach you fear all week that there might be a letdown and you try to deliver the message, try to deliver the message. We failed to do that so that’s our fault and anytime you’re trying to reach a group, you’re trying to try as many ways as you can, and obviously, we needed to figure out a better one.”
Next up for Mississippi State is a road game at Kentucky.
