STARKVILLE -- Jesse McCord just wanted another chance. The 6-foot-2, 190-pound freshman right-hander from Spanish Fort, Alabama, made the most of it Tuesday afternoon.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Around 1 a.m. Sunday, Vic Schaefer and his Mississippi State women's basketball team were three hours into powerless pitch darkness. The team hotel had lost power ahead of MSU's 2 p.m. tip at Alabama, a team that, on paper, didn't pose the heavyweight threat MSU encountered at Kentucky and what it likely will face Thursday at Southeastern Conference co-leader South Carolina. When daybreak came, Schaefer knew his No. 14 Bulldogs would be in for a fight.
Mississippi State linebacker Benardrick McKinney arrived at the NFL Combine as one of the nation's top inside linebacker prospects. He did nothing to change that fact Sunday. But MSU defensive end Preston Smith might have changed his situation for the better.
