After a 44-34 win over the defending national champion, it's clear these aren't your father's Bulldogs.
In the last two weeks, college football has returned to television screens on Saturdays.
There will be plenty of time for in-depth breakdowns later, but now, it's time for a lighthearted, probably totally inaccurate season prediction column!
Taking a look at different levels of high school football.
STARKVILLE -- Mississippi State football has, for better or worse, arrived.
STARKVILLE -- For better or worse, Mississippi State football is back.
With college football's day of reckoning coming, let's catch up on the past week.
STARKVILLE -- And so another week of postponements, new scheduling models and, ultimately, few decisions actually being made has come to pass.
STARKVILLE -- And so another week of quarantine has come and gone.
STARKVILLE -- Oh how the times have changed.

This column needs a disclaimer right off the bat.
STARKVILLE -- Joe Moorhead thought it was his moment of triumph.
Before Ole Miss and Mississippi State even kicked off, social media ran rampant with speculation Moorhead would be fired from MSU, win or lose, and the school would anoint Louisiana's Billy Napier as the new coach later in the weekend. The validity of those rumors seems very much in question.
STARKVILLE -- In case you slept through Mississippi State's snoozefest of a 45-7 win against FCS opponent Abilene Christian, here's a quick recap.
You know that expression, "It was over from the opening kickoff"? Usually that's figurative, but Saturday, it was literal.
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- In the middle of SEC Media Days in mid-October, Mississippi State men's basketball coach Ben Howland just wanted some fresh air.
Mississippi State's 54-24 thrashing of a hapless Arkansas team Saturday didn't completely erase the stench of a four-game losing streak, but it did give MSU fans plenty of things to feel good about for the first time in about a month.
Saturday did nothing to dispel the narrative Mississippi State is incapable of winning on the road.
