STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) -- Mississippi State's football program is in better shape since coach Dan Mullen took over five years ago.
The Bulldogs have been to three straight bowl games for only the second time in school history and are in the midst of a $75 million renovation to Davis Wade Stadium that will increase seating capacity and add more amenities, like a second high-definition video board.
But for all the good news, here's the bad: The SEC Western Division is still a tough place to reside in college football.
The Bulldogs will once again try to figure out a way to muscle past powers like Alabama and LSU this season. Mullen says that the program's "ultimate goal is to find a way to get to Atlanta and compete for an SEC championship."
