MSU women receives commitment from Australian Bibby

Posted 12/1/2016 in College Sports

Keil Moore saw the potential in Chloe Bibby the first time he saw her play. As international director of scouting for Prospectsnation.com, a website that covers women's college basketball recruiting, Moore was in the Czech Republic for the 2014 International Basketball federation (FIBA) Under-17 World Championships. One of the standout players Moore saw at the event was Bibby, a 6-foot-1 forward who was playing for Australia. Moore was struck by Bibby's "blue-collar feel" as well as her toughness and strength.

Holmes Community College sophomore running back Matt Fuller is a little freaked out about his team's next game. "Never played in a dome," said Fuller, who prepped at Starkville High School.

Defense will be on display in SEC title game

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- The Southeastern Conference's two stingiest defenses will take the field in the league championship game. That's no coincidence.

OXFORD -- The final score -- 55-20 -- is what people will remember for generations.

Posted 11/28/2016 in College Sports

The Southeastern Conference is down to one playoff contender.

Alabama much prefers the first scenario.

Posted 11/27/2016 in College Sports

OXFORD -- Nick Fitzgerald knew after the first possession. The Mississippi State football team's offense was forced to punt after picking up a first down on a 16-yard Aeris Williams run. Fitzgerald, the MSU quarterback, then threw three incomplete passes, but he knew MSU had a chance to beat Ole Miss if it kept the ball on the ground.

Posted 11/27/2016 in College Sports

OXFORD -- Keep Shea Patterson in the pocket. That's what Mississippi State football coach Dan Mullen's message was to his team at halftime. The Ole Miss quarterback had 261 yards of offense (67 rushing, 194 passing) in the first two quarters. Patterson finished with 393 yards (73 rushing, 320 passing), but MSU didn't allow a point in the second half in a 55-20 win Saturday in the Battle for the Golden Egg at Vaught-Hemingway Stadium.

Hurts, Alabama win Iron Bowl

Posted 11/26/2016 in College Sports

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- The Alabama football team's defense still seems to have a wall erected at the goal line, and Jalen Hurts remains unflappable enough to shrug off mistakes. The combination has been good enough every time this season. Hurts rebounded from two early interceptions to pass for 286 yards and the top-ranked Crimson Tide's defense did the rest in a 30-12 victory against No. 16 Auburn on Saturday over No. 16 Auburn.
