STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) Mississippi State's season hasn't gone exactly as planned with the Bulldogs well out of the Southeastern Conference Western Division race.
There are some obvious reasons for the team's losses, but it's hard to put any blame on the defense.
Mississippi State has played some of the best defense in the nation this fall and the group will be remembered among the best in school history. No. 25 Mississippi State (6-4, 2-4 Southeastern Conference) will lean on that side of the ball once again when it hosts Arkansas (2-8, 0-6) on Saturday.
