When it comes to kicking for Mississippi State, it's on a week-to-week basis.
Bulldog head coach Dan Mullen, also the special teams coach, charts his kickers during the week's practice and then makes a decision on who will kick in the next game based on the stats.
There have been two kickers who have kicked field goals this season, two who have punted and three who have had a chance at kickoffs.
Over the last few weeks, Mullen has been consistent with his kicking selections. Sophomore Devon Bell, who was kicking field goals early in the season, has been punting and redshirt freshman Evan Sobiesk has been giving the duty of kicking field goals.
"I like being successful," Mullen said. "I like big, long punts with great hang time, I like field goals that go through the uprights and kickoffs that go through the back of the end zone. If that's the recipe for it, then that's what we do, but we always evaluate practice."
