Mississippi State Owns Nation’s Third-Longest Current Winning Streak
Alabama and Oregon are home to the nation’s top-two current longest winning streaks but the team with the third-longest current winning streak is undefeated at 6-0 for only the fourth time in its history. The Mississippi State Bulldogs own the nation’s third-longest winning streak (eight games) behind the Crimson Tide (10 games) and the Ducks (nine games).
Just one of 12 teams in the FBS still undefeated, Mississippi State is 6-0 for just the fourth time in its history. The Bulldogs also started out 6-0 in 1999, 1944, and 1919. Mississippi State’s current winning streak is tied for the third-longest in school history. The Bulldogs won 13 games from 1942-44 and 10 from 1940-41.
The conference trek that remains for Mississippi State is no easy road. Mississippi State is 3-0 in the Southeastern Conference with SEC games remaining versus the Alabama Crimson Tide, Texas A&M Aggies, LSU Tigers, Arkansas Razorbacks and Ole Miss Rebels. The Bulldogs shrugged off the Tennessee Volunteers in their latest outing, winning 41-31. Since head coach Dan Mullen‘s arrival in 2009, Mississippi State is 8-3 against SEC East teams.
The Bulldogs are currently preparing to host the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders, a team that is 4-2 overall and 2-1 in the highly-competitive Sun Belt Conference.
The Mississippi State offense is thriving and that should allow the Bulldogs to extend their winning streak with a victory over Middle Tennessee this week. Mississippi State has scored 212 points through its first six games, its highest point total through the first six games of the season in school history. The Bulldogs have only allowed 92 points in six games.
