No. 25 Mississippi State eyes upset over No, 3 LSU

STARKVILLE, Miss. - There is little doubt Mississippi State's football program has improved tremendously during coach Dan Mullen's two-plus years.

A punch line in the Southeastern Conference just three years ago, the Bulldogs have been nationally ranked nine straight weeks, the first such streak since 1999.

But one nagging stat keeps coming up: Mississippi State has just a 2-9 record against Western Division foes in Mullen's tenure.

Considering the Bulldogs want to win the Western division and advance to the SEC championship game for the second time in school history, they must start winning some of those games.

The next chance comes Thursday night, when No. 25 Mississippi State hosts No. 3 LSU at Davis Wade Stadium.
