It wasn't the night Mississippi Stat fans expected for homecoming, but at least it was a win.
The Bulldogs struggled for most of the second half, but held on to beat Bowling Green 21-20 Saturday night at Davis Wade Stadium.
"That's a good win for us," MSU head coach Dan Mullen said. "A win's a win. We'll take it. That's a very good football team. We knew that coming in though."
OK, the Mississippi State Bulldogs are now 3-3 overall after a 21-20 homecoming victory over Bowling Green.
Let's see what they can do with the rest of the season.
We are now exactly at the halfway point of the season and trying to figure out this bunch of Bulldogs remains a very difficult thing to do.
The video board at Davis Wade Stadium introduced both Tyler Russell and Dak Prescott as the starting quarterbacks.
The senior Russell got the start as the took snaps on the Bulldogs' first offensive possession of the game, but Prescott got his fair share of playing time.Â
