Interesting tidbit from Paul Myerberg's fabulous Pre-Snap Read. Mississippi State has won 34 consecutive games when leading after three quarters, but has lost 23 in a row when trailing after three quarters. The Bulldogs are coming off a 7-6 season, Dan Mullen's third in Starkville. Playing in the rugged SEC West doesn't help. The team was only 2-6 in league play. So how does it stack up for 2012? The early schedule is favorable and there are seven winnable home games, but trips to Alabama and Louisiana State could be a bit much. Expect improvement, but in small steps.
