Mississippi State fell 28-25 to LSU on Saturday at Davis Wade Stadium in both teams’ Southeastern Conference opener. The Bulldogs trailed just 7-3 at halftime, but the Tigers used a trio of 2nd half touchdowns to surge to the win.
MSU (2-2, 0-1) outgained LSU (3-1, 1-0) in total yardage in defeat. The Bulldogs posted 486 yards of total offense, paced by quarterback Will Rogers’ 371 yards passing. The State sophomore signal caller completed 47 of his 62 attempts and also had 3 touchdown passes. Rogers has now thrown for 300 or more yards in a game 5 times already in his young career, the 2nd-most such occasions in school history behind only Dak Prescott.
