And three games into the SEC schedule, the Bulldogs are playing for bowl position. The Bulldogs lost to the Texas A&M Aggies in what is a complete reversal of storylines for the state of Mississippi from this time a year ago.

2014 was a magical season. 2015 looks to be a season where the Bulldogs try to pull off a good win here or there. There are still a number of winnable games left on the schedule, so there isn’t any reason to give up hope, but it is hard to go from the high and euphoria fans experienced just a season ago when the team lost their second game of the year in game 12 and already have 2 losses in game 5.

The good news is this was arguably the toughest stretch of the schedule. The Bulldogs had back to back games in a hostile environment and managed to win one of them. The next three will likely see the Bulldogs as prohibitive favorites, and they might even be favorites going on the road to Missouri on the first Thursday in November.

As hard as it was to watch the team lose in the fashion they did, they have a chance to correct things over the next few weeks and build up some confidence. So try not to get too down because there is still more football in front of this team than there is behind us.

With that being said, we learned quite a bit about the Bulldogs. Let’s take a look at what those things were in the Mississippi State versus Texas A&M game.
