Bulldogs don't take Golden Eagles lightly

August 28, 2014

Southern Mississippi entered last year's finale at UAB 0-11 and on a 23-game losing streak.
The Golden Eagles stunned UAB, and the college football community for that matter, 62-27 to end the skid and notch their first win in two seasons. That was the only bright spot of Todd Monken's first season in Hattiesburg.
Those Golden Eagles travel north this Saturday to take on Mississippi State and Monken his staff have been preparing for this game since last season ended.
"I think if you go back six months ago, what starts that is beating UAB," Monken said earlier this month. "I think that the energy that came from that, signing the fight song and reaping the rewards for your work. I think that starts it. I think Mississippi State adds to it."
The Bulldogs are huge favorites in this one, but they don't plan on taking the Golden Eagles lightly.
"I think we're playing a good team," MSU junior cornerback Taveze Calhoun said. "We're not going out there thinking that we're just going to roll over those guys. Looking on film, it looks like they've got a lot of great athletes. We're going out there trying to bring our 'A' game and we have to bring our 'A' game to win."
