Homecoming on a college campus is usually a special time.
This year's Mississippi State homecoming is especially special for head coach Dan Mullen.
Mullen leads his Bulldogs (2-3) into a homecoming showdown with the Bowling Green Falcons (5-1) this Saturday.
Mullen got his first full-time coaching gig at a FBS school at Bowling Green. He was the quarterbacks coach from 2001-02 under head coach Urban Meyer.
"We had a great time at Bowling Green," Mullen said on his Sunday teleconference. "It was one of my first full-time coaching positions. We had great time and had a lot of fun. I think we learned a lot. We really cut our teeth up there."
The Falcons were 17-6 and 11-5 in MAC games while Mullen was there.
The Bulldogs and the Falcons kickoff at 6:30 p.m. Saturday. The game can be seen on Fox Sports Net.
