Bye Week for Mississippi State

The Mississippi State Bulldogs took home a 30-6 loss after going against Alabama Saturday. This week, the team has a bye week.

Preparation

During the SEC teleconference, Mississippi State’s head coach Mike Leach said that his team “was still a work in progress.”

Leach was asked to elaborate on their past game against Alabama after the game and declined. When asked again during the teleconference, he stated that it was “still pretty expensive.”

When asked about Alabama quarterback Bryce Young, Leach did not have much input. He stated that “there are a lot of good ones [quarterbacks]” that he has seen. “I’ve seen better ones too, but um- but you know obviously most guys are worse.”

Leach will use this week to prepare his team for the upcoming game against Auburn and to “keep working on competing.” Not only that, but this week will also allow for the team to gain some much needed rest.
