BATON ROUGE, La. – Mississippi State fell to LSU 23-20 in a largely defensive affair, despite a fight for the comeback late in the game.
LSU built a 23-3 lead at halftime and led 23-6 through three periods, but MSU’s comeback effort began when junior quarterback Damian Williams led both of State’s two touchdown drives.
“We played with some good effort in the second half,” head coach Dan Mullen said. “Stop worrying about everything except going as hard as you can on every single play. Honestly, that was our second half adjustment.”
Mississippi State plays at UMass next Saturday at 2:30 p.m. CT at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.
