STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) -- It's been a sobering two weeks for Mississippi State's football team.
Consecutive lopsided losses to Alabama and Texas A&M have erased most of the momentum from an impressive 7-0 start to the season. Now the No. 22 Bulldogs (7-2, 3-2 Southeastern Conference) must recover quickly and get ready for a night game at Death Valley against No. 9 LSU (7-2, 3-2).
Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen says there won't be major changes in personnel or to the playbook going into the LSU game, but the Bulldogs must execute better on both sides of the ball.
History isn't on Mississippi State's side. The Bulldogs have lost 12 in a row to LSU and haven't won in Baton Rouge since 1991.
