Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen has several veteran players to lean on this week.

Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen doesn't know if a bye week can come at a good time or a bad time.
The No. 14 Bulldogs (4-0, 1-0) are in the midst of their first, and many believe it is a good time for it.
MSU is coming off an emotional win over LSU, which is the first against the Tigers since 1999. The Bulldogs are back on the field two Saturdays from now when they host Texas A&M.
