  Early in the fourth quarter, with his team down 20 points at home to a non-Power 5 opponent, Mississippi State head coach Mike Leach may have heard the lyrics to an old Talking Heads song sponging around in his brain, wondering, how did we get here? Then the Bulldogs snapped in gear, and, in true Leach fashion, scored 21 points in 12 minutes to beat Louisiana Tech 35-34 in a season opener. "I basically said we tried every way known to man to lose it, just for fun let's try something different," Leach said. "Let's go ahead and do our job because we've got nothing to lose. And off we went." LA Tech trailed 14-0 in the first quarter before rattling off 34 unanswered points against the Southeastern Conference's No. 4-ranked total defense from a season ago.

Mississippi State turned the ball over four times, committed 12 penalties for 95 yards and often looked confused and listless in the first game of Leach's second season in Starkville, putting the heavily-favored Bulldogs in quite the pickle. "The middle of the game was as bad as a team can play on all sides," Leach said. But in the game's final 12 minutes, the Bulldogs regained their offensive composure. Jo'Quavious Marks rushed for two short-yardage touchdowns, then Will Rogers found Jaden Walley for a 15-yard strike to put Mississippi State back on top. - Mississippi State/AP College Football
