STARKVILLE -- For the first time in 20 years, the Mississippi State University football team had a quarterback recognized as one of the conference's best.
Breanna Richardson still has the list. Replete with Southeastern Conference members University of Georgia, University of Arkansas, Auburn University, and the University of Alabama, Richardson's final collection of schools had a Southern flavor to it.

STEENS -- K.C. Cunningham and Justin Tate had no way of knowing how long it was going to take the Immanuel Christian football team to get its first victory of the 2012 season.
OXFORD -- Bo Wallace noticed it Monday when he made the short walk to his morning classes. A few more students stopped him to offer encouragement. There were a few more handshakes. A few more pats on the back.

WEST POINT -- Mississippi State University women's golf coach Ginger Brown-Lemm had an ambitious wish list when she took over the Lady Bulldogs program.

The sellout, the ninth largest in stadium history, was the 18th in a row.

"I really can't be, to tell you the truth," said Wallace, despite throwing for three touchdowns and running for another Saturday to lead the Rebels to a 28-10 win against the University of Texas-El Paso. "I thought I played well for the first half, but I was sloppy in the second half."
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Perhaps University of Alabama coach Nick Saban was right. Maybe the game against University of Western Kentucky was important.

Trace Lee has grown up around the Columbus High School football program. His older brother, Tyson, was a quarterback at Columbus High before he moved on to Itawamba Community College and Mississippi State.
