    STARKVILLE (AP) — Mississippi State says it is working with the NCAA because of a “potential recruiting irregularity” in the football program, giving the Bulldogs a substantial distraction less than two weeks from their opener against Jackson State. (more…) (August 24, 2012, Page 7A)

      LSU bullies Bulldogs in win

      Mississippi State has established itself as a very good football team. The problem is that’s not good enough in the Southeastern Conference Western Division.

      No. 3 LSU punished No. 25 Mississippi State on the way to a 19-6 victory Thursday night. In a matchup of two physical teams, the Tigers were by far the bigger bully, making 15 tackles for a loss and holding the Bulldogs to 193 total yards. (more…) (September 16, 2011, Page 7A)

        Bulldogs to tangle with No. 3 LSU tonight

        STARKVILLE (AP) — Mississippi State hasn’t been able to beat anyone in its division other than Ole Miss since Dan Mullen arrived.

        With No. 3 LSU in Starkville tonight, now would be a good time to start.

          Ballard, No. 20 Mississippi State dominates Memphis Tigers

          MEMPHIS (AP) — Over the past week, Memphis was fond of saying that Thursday night’s game against No. 20 Mississippi State would give a good indication about how much the program has progressed. The apparent answer?

          Not much. Mississippi State hammered Memphis 59-14 at the Liberty Bowl, rolling up a school-record 645 total yards in the process. The Tigers were down 31-7 by halftime and never made the game competitive. (more…) (September 2, 2011, Page 9A)

            No. 20 Bulldogs travel north to face Memphis

            STARKVILLE (AP) — Like most football teams, Mississippi State usually spends a lot of time in film study during the week, trying to dissect the strengths and weaknesses of the upcoming opponent.
            The problem is that might be useless for Thursday’s season opener against the Memphis Tigers at the Liberty Bowl in Memphis.
