The Bulldogs have a scoring problem

The Bulldogs have an offense capable of putting points on the board. They just aren’t doing it.

Through three SEC games, the Bulldogs have yet to score more than 20 points. This isn’t going to work if the Bulldogs want to compete in the remaining five SEC games on the schedule. Part of it self inflicted. The two turnovers were monumental disasters in this game, but there is more to it.

Mississippi State has no one they are confident to get the ball in the end zone outside of Dak Prescott. And as a result, the offense looks a lot like it did in 2013. There are times when it looks like a well oiled machine, but once inside the red zone, the defense focuses on Dak Prescott and no one else takes over.

Eight wins is not out of the question, and if things break right , and the coaching staff corrects some of these issues, then the team might could make it to nine wins. But the coaching staff has their work cut out for them. It’s time they respond in the face of adversity.
