The Mississippi State Bulldogs kept digging themselves deeper and deeper into a hole, until it decided to stop and try and climb out.
MSU got nearly out of the hole on Thursday night, before it fell back down and were unable to recover.
The Bulldogs trailed the TCU Horned Frogs by 18 early in the second half, before cutting the lead down to three points with 2:28 left.Â
The Southeastern Conference has not fared well in the Big 12/SEC Challenge.
With Mississippi State's 71-61 loss to TCU on Thursday night, the SEC fell to 3-2 in the series.
Alabama got the conference off on the right note with a 76-64 victory over Texas Tech on Nov. 14, but Texas defeated Vanderbilt and Iowa State handled Auburn on Monday.
SCOOBA - One is a former Starkville Yellowjacket and the other is a former West Point Green Wave.
It would probably be difficult for East Mississippi Community College running backs Preston Baker from Starkville and Lakenderic Thomas from West Point to get along in another situation.
When it comes to playing with the Lions, Baker and Thomas have become close.
Nathan Wright and the French Camp Panthers have been in this position before.
The Panthers were in Jackson last season competing for the Class A State championship and here they are again this year.
The only difference is the manner in which French Camp got here and for Wright, this season has been just a â€śbit sweeter.â€ť
Starkville Academy football coach Jeff Terrill smiles when the subject of Tripp Janssen comes up.
When asked about his former Volunteer, Terrill's response is one of pride.
Having watched Janssen progress from a first-year starter his sophomore year to a two-way starter this season, it is easy for the coach to see the senior's growth.
