Mississippi State’s head coach says they were not getting into the playoffs anyway

Mississippi State ranked fourth in this week’s College Football Playoff rankings, but after Saturday’s loss Mullen told, “I didn’t think we were getting in the playoff anyway.”

Mullen said the playoff committee is happy they lost.

“Maybe a lot of committee members breathed a big sigh of relief,” Mullen said, explaining that the members now no longer “have to consider” bumping Mississippi State out of the top four had the Bulldogs won.

“If we had won … I think there would have been some really interesting conversations that would have shaped the future of the playoff,” he said.

The Bulldogs had a great season, and it was awesome to see.
