Five Keys to Troy-Mississippi State
Jim McElwain has labored in college football's "Mecca" under Alabama coach Nick Saban and run the offense for two national championship teams.
STARKVILLE -- What a difference a year makes. Last year, Troy was a double-digit underdog that scared Mississippi State in a second-half run before falling 30-24. At 6:30 p.m. Saturday (Fox Sports South), Troy won't be the plucky underdog looking for attention. The Trojans know they have it.
GOODMAN -- The No. 9 Itawamba Community College football team remained undefeated Thursday night with a 13-10 victory against Holmes C.C. in a MACJC North Division game.
MOORHEAD -- For East Mississippi Community College football players, one could consider the postgame a semi-victory.
MOORHEAD -- Dontreal Pruitt and Justin Mack teamed up to help lead Laurel High School to the Mississippi High School Activities Association's Class 4A North State championship in 2011.
AUSTIN, Texas -- A few days after Alabama won the 2013 national championship, a University of Texas regent and a former regent talked with Nick Saban's agent about the possibility of the Crimson Tide coach replacing Longhorns coach Mack Brown, The Associated Press has learned.
STARKVILLE -- Mississippi State defensive coordinator Geoff Collins can't mention senior linebacker Deontae Skinner without getting emotional.
STARKVILLE -- Devon Bell's attitude isn't like most kickers and that might just be his problem.
STARKVILLE -- If there's one quarterback that knows what it takes to put it up big numbers on a Mississippi State defense, it's Troy's Corey Robinson.
STARKVILLE -- Mississippi State guard Jalen Steele has left the men's basketball program with the intention to transfer after he graduates following the spring semester.
SCOOBA - East Mississippi Community College freshman running back Preston Baker has always been drawn to watching Oregon play football.
STARKVILLE - Mississippi State football coach Dan Mullen said Monday he has been fortunate never to have "a quarterback controversy" in his coaching career.
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Nick Saban isn't lavishing praise on Alabama's performance in a memorable victory against Texas A&M.
FULTON -- The Itawamba Community College football team is used to 3-0 starts.
With the Ole Miss football team off to its first 3-0 start since 1989, it would be normal for coach Hugh Freeze to worry about complacency.
STARKVILLE -- Meet Dan Mullen -- Mississippi State's fourth-down gambler.
COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- The worst defensive performance in the history of Alabama football, at least according to the stat sheet, was no reason for Nick Saban to panic.
STARKVILLE - Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen clarified his quarterback situation Sunday by stating senior Tyler Russell still isn't cleared for contact.
