MSU-Troy Preview

STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) -- Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen winced when recalling the "enormous amount" of yards his defense gave up against the Troy Trojans last season.

The Bulldogs escaped that game with a 30-24 victory, despite giving up 572 total yards.

So it's easy to see why the Bulldogs (1-2) won't be taking Troy (2-1) lightly on Saturday when the two meet in a rematch at Davis Wade Stadium.

Mississippi State is trying to recover from a difficult start to the season, especially a 24-20 loss to Auburn last weekend. The Bulldogs led for the majority of the game, but Auburn scored with 10 seconds remaining to win.

Troy is coming off a 41-34 loss to Arkansas State last Thursday, giving them a few extra days to prepare for the Bulldogs.
