We’re just going to be patient with it and hopefully get through it.
We’ll see how this goes.”
The Bulldogs (2-1) are on the road for the first time this season against Mississippi State (0-1).

“Jalen has been playing really well, but we have to be careful not to make too many mistakes.
It’s really tough, but I think he’s got to stay focused.”
