Mississippi State enjoys utilizing the extra practices it gets with the participation in a bowl game on the horizon. 
The Bulldog coaching staff allows a good amount of younger players get reps that they don't get during the regular season.
On Tuesday, that process came to an end with a scrimmage at Davis Wade Stadium.
Many young Bulldogs got a chance to show the coaching staff and a few fans what they can do in a game-type atmosphere.
"It was good and guys that normally don't get a lot of reps played," MSU head coach Dan Mullen said. "You get the chance to see those guys play. The young guys that are going to be out here next year for us, got their opportunity. They got a game situation or scrimmage situation in the stadium.
"I like that our guys played hard. They had fun and these guys love to play. When you get to play in more of a game situation like (Tuesday), it is a lot more fun. Sometimes you've got to break the practice (routine) up and they had the opportunity to come and play. I think they had a lot of fun."
