Mississippi State Offense Rolling, Still Working on Defense

STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) -- Mississippi State has two good quarterbacks and one shaky defense heading into this Saturday's game with Bowling Green.

The Bulldogs looked good offensively with Tyler Russell and Dak Prescott sharing time under center, but they're trying to correct some defensive problems that allowed LSU to score eight touchdowns -- including four in the fourth quarter -- in Saturday's 59-26 loss.

Coach Dan Mullen said Mississippi State's main problem on defense is too much aggression, which causes players to get out of position.

If the Bulldogs can shore up the defensive problems, the offense appears capable of putting up points. Russell was 7 of 11 passing for 146 yards and two touchdowns against LSU in his first game back since missing a month with a concussion.
