HOOVER, Ala. (AP) - Dan Mullen says he's learned a lot as a coach during his five seasons at Mississippi State.

Fifth-year quarterback Tyler Russell has plenty of experience, too.

Together, the two will try to lead Mississippi State back to a bowl game for a fourth straight season and contend for a Southeastern Conference Western Division title.

Mullen said on Thursday at SEC Media Days that the seasoned Russell "understands what has to get accomplished" for the Bulldogs to meet their goal of making the SEC championship game.

The Bulldogs appeared to have a shot last season with a 7-0 start, but lost five of six down the stretch against tough competition.

Mullen said he hopes that experience helped his team learn how to "handle that adversity a little bit better."
