Mississippi State: They Have to Learn How to Win

Mississippi State had the ball first and goal from the two with less than two minutes to play against LSU. Then they had the ball fourth and goal from six inches out. Then they turned the ball over on downs with 1:08 remaining on the game clock. The MSU Bulldogs caught the Tigers of LSU at just the right time to pull off an impressive upset. Almost just the right time. The game was theirs for the taking, but the Tigers prevailed by the tight score of 30-26. State has been down so long they just don't know how to win anymore. And they are in one heck of a conference to even get the chance to learn how. Their legitimate chances will be few and far between with the likes of Alabama, LSU, Auburn, etc. on their docket every season. The Bulldogs are getting better, but they still have a long way to go. Especially when it comes to knowing how to win, because this loss will stay with them for a long time.
