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."
Most of the student section left at halftime as the Bulldogs (3-3) were shut out and stumbled to just 129 yards of total offense in the third and fourth quarters.
"We got a lot of penalties and we had a lot of missed blocks," Mullen said. 
The Falcons (5-2) scored seven points and had 196 yards of total offense in the second half. 
MSU finished the game with 422 yards of total offense – 245 rushing and 177 passing. The Bulldog defense held the Falcons to 384 yards of total offense – 160 on the ground and 224 through the air. 
Leading by one point, MSU faced a fourth and three from the Falcon 8-yard-line. Instead of kicking the field goal, Mullen decided to go for it.
