Mississippi State out to prove their worth
The cowbells were out in full force for Saturday’s game between Mississippi State and Alabama as the Bulldogs appeared to have the Crimson Tide on the ropes until they didn’t.
MSU took control with a 24-17 lead early in the fourth, but it wasn’t enough to end what is now a ten game losing streak to the Tide.
Sophomore Quarterback Jalen Hurts made two huge throws against the blitz in the waning moments. The second of those being a game winning strike to Devonta Smith from 26 yards out.
The Bulldogs were gonna live and die by sending the house and the 31-24 end result has Dan Mullen and company searching for a strong bounce back performance on the road this week at Arkansas. “It’s a big deal for what type of team we are. It’s a big challenge for our guys, if we think we’re a good football team we’re going to find a way to be better this week than we were last week. And that’s what good teams do. We have three losses to teams in the Top 7, so we want to finish this season strong and hopefully put ourselves as a Top 10, Top 15 program in the country. And a Top 10, Top 15 team in the country. And to do that, we’re going to have to be much better this week than we were last week.”
This week is MSU’s last road trip of the regular season as the Bulldogs head to Arkansas for an 11 a.m. kickoff on Saturday.
