Ms. State First Win Bittersweet for Coach QBKILLAR Ms State 34 UAB 21 With the first game of the 2012 season over Coach QBKILLAR is scrathing his head on what just happened to what is suppose to be a "better than average" defensive unit. Bulldog fans looked on in disbelief as UAB tourched their secondary for 295 passing yards in the season opener. Only bright spot on defense for the Bulldogs was a very aggresive D line and linebacking corp that held their opponent to 0 rushing yards on 18 attempts. The Bulldogs will be heading back to the practice fields to rectify this situation. On the offensive side of the ball things went pretty much the way everone expected them to with Vick Ballard rushing for 126 yards on 20 attempts with 3 TD's (2 rushing and 1 receiveing). The Bulldogs have a very balanced rushing game with 3 very dependable RB's. The passing game for Ms State just never could get going in this season opener with QB Chris Relf 6 for 15 with 49 yards and a single TD pass. This is very dissapointing considering the solid lineup of receivers that returned to play for the Bulldogs this year.
