RUSTON, La. (AP) — Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen took a long look at a sheet of statistics that included three blocked extra points, one blocked punt and an 87-yard fumble, and came to the same conclusion as thousands of other college football fans. "It was a strange game at times, wasn't it," Mullen said.
Grambling State opens the season as one of the favorites to win the Southwestern Athletic Conference and the program's players are all over the league's preseason All-Conference lists. Grambling coach Broderick Fobbs didn't seem to mind the preseason love his program is receiving. He also wasn't particularly excited by it.
