Starkville Daily News - - OUTDOORS -

“I was re­ally pleased with Ste­wart as a red­shirt fresh­man hav­ing to go against Ar­den Key who is one of the most dom­i­nat­ing de­fen­sive play­ers in the coun­try,” Mullen said. “I thought he did a great job of go­ing out there, tak­ing on that chal­lenge and per­for­mance.”

As pleased as Mullen was with the blowout win, he doesn't be­lieve the Bull­dogs are close to play­ing their best foot­ball. The coach was happy with the his­toric vic­tory but will flush the cel­e­bra­tion quickly and turn fo­cus to a big road game at Georgia next week.

“We've got to get a lot bet­ter,” Mullen said. “We've got to con­tinue to im­prove. We have a young foot­ball team. We've got to con­tinue to build the depth and con­tinue to take steps for­ward.”
