There were few schedules more difficult than Mississippi State’s in 2013. All of the Bulldogs’ five losses came against ranked opponents: Oklahoma State, Auburn, LSU, South Carolina, Texas A&M and Alabama. Talk about an impressive strength of schedule. But that did little to quell the talk of Mullen being on the hot seat when Mississippi State lost to Alabama at home to drop to 4-6 and in need of two straight wins to become bowl eligible. They came in gritty fashion, but overtime victories over Arkansas and Ole Miss ultimately turned the narrative of the season, casting the Bulldogs as the comeback kids and Mullen as a coach securely headed into his fifth season in Starkville.
