Ole Miss will look to freshmen to replace McFarland at point

Posted 10/27/2014 in College Sports

OXFORD -- Coaches cringe when they lose players with "franchise" labels. That's how Ole Miss women's basketball coach Matt Insell refers to Valencia McFarland, a do-it-all point guard who paced the Rebels for the past four seasons. McFarland, a second-team All-Southeastern Conference performer and honorable mention All-American, finished her career as the program's sixth all-time leading scorer with more than 1,600 points. She also led the team in steals for four seasons, and was one of four players in program history to score more than 1,000 points and hand out more than 400 assists.

BATON ROUGE, La. -- Bo Wallace isn't about to dwell on his first game-losing throw of the season.

Eulls leads strong defensive effort by Bulldogs

Posted 10/26/2014 in College Sports

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Mississippi State defensive lineman Kaleb Eulls thought he had overrun the play. He was wrong. The 6-foot-3, 290-pound starting defensive tackle stopped his momentum late in the second quarter and reached up with one arm to bring down Kentucky quarterback Patrick Towles for the Bulldogs' first sack of the day. MSU delivered six more in the 45-31 victory to move from fourth in the Southeastern Conference in sacks to first with 28 in seven games.

 

 

Robinson, No. 1 MSU bowl over Kentucky

Posted 10/26/2014 in College Sports

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- The game was over, but Mississippi State tailback Josh Robinson had a message for his coach. Standing in the victory formation, MSU quarterback Dak Prescott prepared to take the Bulldogs' final snap to secure a rugged 45-31 victory against Kentucky at Commonwealth Stadium on Saturday night. To Prescott's left was Robinson, who frantically gestured in the direction of MSU coach Dan Mullen and held up two fingers. Minutes after MSU's victory, its 10th straight and seventh in a row to open the season, Robinson was asked about his signals to Mullen.

Statistics might not tell the whole story about how good No. 3 Ole Miss' defense has been this season. But it's a good place to start.

Posted 10/22/2014 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- The Mississippi State football team didn't miss a beat.
