Can Mississippi State football find a way to limit mistakes?
There’s the obvious here.
Will Rogers, while much improved over where he’s been up to this point in this season, had a couple of key turnovers that really limited the Bulldogs in this game and provided scoring opportunities for the South Carolina Gamecocks.
The Mississippi State football team also committed five penalties for 48 yards. That’s not great. South Carolina got a couple of first downs off of that.
But there’s also the issues that MSU had in the secondary. There’s the issues that Mississippi State had on the offensive line. The Bulldogs allowed Rogers to be sacked on four different occasions. Also of note, MSU’s offensive line also couldn’t pave a way for Woody Marks to run the ball.
So, Mississippi State absolutely has to find a way to start limiting mistakes. Because the Bulldogs have a game against Alabama coming up. And that means their margin for error gets slimmer and slimmer.
They can’t afford to give the Crimson Tide extra possessions with turnovers or more first downs with penalties. And they can’t allow for pass rushers to cause chaos for an offense that has been limited and inefficient at times.
