2. What’s next for Mississippi State after lopsided defeat against No. 14 LSU?

Conference play officially arrived for the Mississippi State Bulldogs and on Saturday, it hit them like a freight train. The number fourteen-ranked LSU Tigers took a visit to Stark Vegas town, and dominated the game from start to finish. It’s something that head coach Zach Arnett said cannot be the standard for his team moving forward after suffering his first defeat as the leader of the program. “I’ve done a very poor job in my evaluation of where we’re at as a football team and we have to decide how we want to respond to this,” Coach Arnett said, sending an honest message on behalf of the Bulldogs.
