Michigan State Notre Dame making most of red zone scoring chances

EAST LANSING – Michigan State is nearly perfect in the red zone. And coach Mark Dantonio is quick to point out if not for LJ Scott’s goal-line fumble, the Spartans would be unblemished. Notre Dame has scored on all 15 of its trips inside opponents’ 20-yard line. The Irish have two field goals and 13 TDs. Those efficient early efforts make Saturday’s showdown at Spartan Stadium (8 p.m./Fox) a situation where both the Spartans and the Irish must continue to score while figuring out how to stop each other in order to win. “This year, we're scoring,” MSU coach Mark Dantonio said today. “I think it’s execution, I think it’s a mindset – not just from your coaching staff, but your players.

Its time for Dan Mullen to strike while the iron is hot and plan his exit

Dan Mullen is the hottest coach in America. Not necessarily the best or the most successful, just the hottest. What's not to like about a complete dismantling of LSU Tigers that established Mississippi State Bulldogs as the second-best team in the Alabama-dominated SEC? Ed Orgeron and the Tigers were absolutely schooled in a result that reminded us just how good Mullen is at this coaching thing -- and how bad he needs to get out of Starkville, Mississippi. For five weeks in 2014, the Bulldogs were ranked No. 1 in the country. Mullen has the best winning percentage at MSU in 69 years (.604). They have been to seven straight bowls, five of them wins. This week, Mississippi State went from unranked
