In the first real challenge of the season, men's basketball coach Rick Ray's Mississippi State Bulldogs didn't rise to the occasion.
The Bulldogs played on the road at Utah State and dropped an 87-68 decision to the Aggies in the first true road game of the season.
MSU gets another opportunity to play another quality opponent today.
The Bulldogs (5-1) host the TCU Horned Frogs (4-3) as part of the Big 12/SEC Challenge tonight. Tipoff is set for 6:02 p.m inside Humphrey Coliseum. It can be seen on ESPNU as well.
