    MSU wins thrilling Egg Bowl in OT, 31-24
    For Mississippi State there is no greater goal than defeating Ole Miss. This game lived up to the stature of this great SEC rivalry. After a scoreless first quarter, the Rebs would drive the field and punch it in from 1 yard out:
    The Bulldogs would respond in kind:
    Will Shrumpert's 1 yard run tied the game at 7.
    Right before the half, MSU would take a 7 point lead:​
    In the 2nd half Ole Miss would score a TD on a Marcus Temple pick 6, 14-14. The teams would trade FGs to send the game to overtime.​
    After trading scores in the first OT, the Bulldogs went to work:​
    Mississippi, attempting to tie the game at 31, called an option:​
    Nathan Stanley is too late on the pitch and MSU recovers.​

    Mississippi State opens season strong against Baylor 41-7

    Expectations are up this year in Starkville after a promising 8 win season last year. The Baylor game presented an interesting challenge. Would MSU play down to the level of their competition or take care of business on the road? The game started fast with Tyler Russell hooking up with Robert Johnson and Brandon Heavens for scores. Baylor would counter with a WR sweep that went for 6. But the Bulldogs' offense, led by Tyler Russell and Chad "Mississippi" Bumphis was too much. Russell had 369 yards and 3 TDs on the day and Bumphis caught 8 passes for 141 yards and a score.

    Next: Memphis

    Bulldogs pull away from Memphis in the 4th, 38-28

    One thing is for sure: Mississippi State can score on offense. Tyler Russell had another outstanding day, throwing for over 400 yards and 5 TDs against Memphis. The Tigers played tough. Memphis took a 7-0 lead and hung around all game. It wasn't until this kick return in the 4th quarter that MSU could breathe:



    Chad "Mississippi" Bumphis takes it to the house.

    Bumphis was huge for a second week in a row, catching 8 passes for over 140 yards and this score:



    Mississippi State will have a tough test next week, as the Bulldogs travel to defending SEC West champion LSU.

    Mississippi State Shocks #4 LSU in Death Valley, 31-28

    This was a statement game for MSU's up and coming program. Going into the game the players said all of the right things: "LSU is a great team and they are very well coached, etc." You know, the typical player-coach speak leading up to big conference game. This game quickly moved from a Saturday afternoon mismatch, to a Satruday evening war in Death Valley.

    The Bayou Bengals would score first, and then MSU would counter with a FG. In the second quarter, the Tigers would expose MSU's lack of speed in the secondary:



    Zack Lee hit Ruben Randell from 54 yards out. 14-3 LSU

    But the Bulldogs would answer the bell just before the half:



    Tyler Russell's pass cut LSU's lead to 14-10

    Mississippi State would drive the field to open the 2nd half and FB Will Schrumpert would pound it in from 1 yard out. LSU would respond right away with a Michael Ford TD run: 21-17 Bayou Bengals.

    The 4th quarter would see a flurry of scoring, starting with this Chad Bumphis TD reception:



    But LSU, with Zach Lee at the helm, would drive the field:



    and score on this option run left! 28-24 LSU with under a minute remaining.

    Could Tyler Russell lead the Bulldogs downfield with 2 timeouts remaining? Russell hit multiple receivers downfield to move inside LSU territory, and with less than 20 ticks on the clock...



    TOUCHDOWN MSU! 31-28.

    great game fordtuff

    Next: Cincinnati
