The games between Mississippi State and LSU have become more competitive since Dan Mullen took over as head coach of the Bulldogs.

The Starkville Yellowjackets have put together a pretty impressive two-year run in Class 5A, Region 2, District 6.

The Starkville Lady Yellowjackets had one of the top Class 6A girls high school basketball teams in the state on the ropes in the Beehive Tuesday night, but just couldn't put it away.

Every week in the Southeastern Conference is a grind, especially on the offensive side of the ball.
This week the No. 22 Mississippi State Bulldogs (7-2, 3-2) face one of the top defenses in the nation against No. 9 LSU (7-2, 3-2). The Bulldogs have lost 12-straight games to the Tigers and 19 of 20.
It was a tale of two halves for the Starkville Yellowjackets in the season opener against Greenwood last Saturday.
When it comes to facing the Meridian Wildcats tonight at the Beehive, SHS boys coach Greg Carter wants a more complete effort.
The Yellowjackets established a 12-point lead in the first half before losing a 61-58 decision in the West Point Classic.
Mississippi State football coach Dan Mullen was still accepting blame on Sunday afternoon.
After Saturday's 38-13 loss to the Texas A&M Aggies on Saturday, there could have been quite a bit of finger-pointing going on.
Mullen continued to insist during his Sunday teleconference that the reason for the problems ultimately rest on his shoulders.
