MSU will try to regroup after loss to LSU

Posted 9/14/2015 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- Mississippi State football coach Dan Mullen hates losing. It didn't matter that No. 25 MSU trailed No. 14 LSU 14-3 at halftime and 21-6 at the start of the fourth quarter started. A 13-point final stanza put the Bulldogs in position to tie and win the game, but Devon Bell missed a 52-yard field goal as time expired in a 21-19 loss before a crowd of 62,531 at Davis Wade Stadium.

Posted 9/13/2015 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- The Mississippi State football team didn't have a problem stopping the run last week against Southern Mississippi, allowing 102 yards and making a goal-line stand in a 34-16 victory. But things changed in a big way Saturday, as MSU couldn't stop LSU's running game, especially sophomore Leonard Fournette, in a 21-19 loss at Davis Wade Stadium.

 

 

MSU's rally falls wide right

Posted 9/13/2015 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- There were several times in the first half Saturday night when Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott put his hands up in frustration. It was easy to see why because the Bulldogs couldn't find a rhythm on offense against a very tough LSU defense. MSU gained only 109 yards of total offense, while Prescott had 71 (88 passing yards, -17 rushing yards) in the first 30 minutes. As a result, MSU trailed 14-3 at halftime. Prescott and the No. 25 Bulldogs turned it around the second half with 269 yards of offense, but it wasn't enough as Devon Bell missed a 52-yard field goal as time expired to give the No. 14 Tigers a 21-19 win.

Coker, Henry lead No. 2 Alabama

Posted 9/13/2015 in College Sports

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- The Alabama football team emphatically brushed aside any fears of getting toppled or needing a great escape like other Southeastern Conference Westeren Division powers, and appears to have found a No. 1 quarterback in the process.

Gordon likes where MSU is entering SEC opener

Posted 9/11/2015 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- Aaron Gordon believes in his players. A four-goal performance against Nicholls State last week and an effort Monday that generated a lot of scoring chances but resulted in a scoreless tie against Southern Mississippi left the Mississippi State women's soccer coach feeling good about where his team is as it enters its Southeastern Conference opener against Vanderbilt (3-3) at 7 tonight in Nashville, Tennessee. The match will be available online via SEC Network + and for those with WatchESPN access.

 

 

Morgan learning to find voice as MSU's captain

Posted 9/11/2015 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- Morgan William is learning the enormity of what the word "captain" encompasses. Last week, the Mississippi State sophomore learned that women's basketball coach Vic Schaefer had named her captain of the 2015-16 team. After not having a captain for his first three seasons at MSU, Schaefer felt the time was right to show his 5-foot-5 point guard how highly he thinks of her by giving her the responsibility of being an even bigger team leader.

Posted 9/11/2015 in College Sports

EMCC showcases depth at wide receiver

Posted 9/11/2015 in College Sports

SCOOBA -- East Mississippi Community College quarterbacks won't have any problem finding a wide receiver this season. At times, it's hard narrowing the options to one because the Lions have plenty of weapons on the outside. That was evident Thursday, as Wyatt Roberts and John Franklin III found eight wideouts and one running back in No. 7 EMCC's 69-0 victory against Coahoma C.C.

 

 

EMCC bounces back, routs Coahoma C.C.

Posted 9/11/2015 in College Sports

SCOOBA -- East Mississippi Community College sophomore wide receiver Allenzae Staggers received some alarming news Sunday during film session. "Coach pulled me aside and told me I would be fielding punts (Thursday night)," Staggers said. "In all my years of playing football, I had never done that. I didn't tell coach that. I just knew this would be another opportunity, so I decided to go with it." After seeing a 25-game winning streak snapped in an overtime loss at Copiah-Lincoln C.C., EMCC coach Buddy Stephens knew some changes were in order.

Ole Miss encouraged by running game

Posted 9/8/2015 in College Sports

OXFORD -- It's hard to get too excited about any statistics from the No. 17 Ole Miss football team's lopsided victory against Tennessee-Martin on Saturday. But one number did catch the attention of coach Hugh Freeze: The Rebels averaged nearly 10 yards per rushing attempt and had five players run for at least 40 yards in the 76-3 victory against the Skyhawks

 

 

Alabama's offense shows versatility vs. Wisconsin

Posted 9/8/2015 in College Sports

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- The Alabama football team's offense had a new look on the field and on the sideline. No. 3 Alabama adjusted to life without some of the top playmakers from last season and with Jake Coker taking most of the snaps at quarterback against No. 20 Wisconsin. Alabama also broke out a variety of placards to signal in plays, ranging from the Seattle Supersonics logo to the Tasmanian Devil.
