Having home field advantage in the Southeastern Conference can mean the difference between a win and a loss.
No one understands this more than Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen.
Mullen leads his Bulldogs (2-2, 0-1) into a home game with No. 10 LSU (4-1, 1-1) this Saturday. MSU is on pace to sellout Davis Wade Stadium for the 26th consecutive time.
"Home field advantage is always critical in the Southeastern Conference," Mullen said on Wednesday's SEC teleconference. "(It's) just because of the atmosphere, the environment you play. I think this is our 26th consecutive sellout. We need it loud, we need our fans cheering and motivating our guys. Hopefully, (it will) create problems for LSU."
Under Mullen, the Bulldogs are 18-11 at home and are 2-0 this season. The two losses for MSU this season came either on the road or a neutral site.Â
