With the conclusion of the Mississippi State football regular season, we grade every game of the 2018 football season.
The 2018 Mississippi State football season has come to a close. The only thing left for the Bulldogs in 2018 is the eventual Bowl game.
The 2018 season was a weird ride for the Mississippi State football program and its fans. The team came into the season riding the wave of huge expectations. Many thought the team could win 10 or 11 games in 2018.
That was not meant to be. The Mississippi State football team finished the 2018 season with an 8-4 record and a 4-4 conference record. It wasn’t the dream season many were hoping for, but the year could have been a lot worse.
After disappointing losses to the Kentucky Wildcats and Florida Gators during weeks four and five of the 2018 season, many weren’t sure if the Mississippi State football team would win enough games in 2018 to even make it to a bowl.
But the Bulldogs were able to rebound against Auburn and Texas A&M, winning those two games when a lot of people thought they wouldn’t. Combine those two wins with a strong three and one November with wins over Louisiana Tech, Arkansas, and Ole Miss, and the Bulldogs finished with a solid 8-4 season.
No, the 2018 Mississippi State football isn’t one that will stand out among the greatest seasons the team has ever had. But it was still a solid outing in the first year of the Joe Moorhead era.
So just how good or disappointing was it? I decided to grade each and every game of the 2018 season to get an idea of just how good or disappointing it was.
