STARKVILLE, Miss. - After a two days of enjoying practices in headgear only under unseasonably cool weather conditions, the Mississippi State football team turned up the heat - and so did Mother Nature - on Saturday. Again conducting split-squad workouts, two groups of Bulldogs practiced in the morning and afternoon wearing shoulder pads for the first time.
"We got after it a little bit today, but we're still not full contact," head coach Dan Mullen said after the second session. "We'll have a little bit more to evaluate from today though, the linemen got a little more work than the first two days."
The Bulldogs picked up the practice tempo with fewer players on the field - meaning more reps for each player.
"We'll get back together as a full team tomorrow. It's good for us to have a little more one-on-one, small-group instruction with the split practices," Mullen said.
Both practices today were open to the public, the final time this fall fans will be able to attend practice. Tomorrow the team will attend Sunday service at a local church before moving practice out to South Farm for the next week.
Mississippi State begins its 2011 season on Thursday, September 1 at Memphis. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m., and the game will be televised by Fox Sports Net.
