Ryan Ashford was much happier with the bus service for this past Saturdayâ€™s Mississippi State University football game than with the service for the Saturday before.
Every meeting of the local Hic-A-Sha-Ba-Ha chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution begins in song.
Mississippi State's legendary radio broadcaster Jack Cristil died Sunday night at the age of 88 from an extended illness.
The Memphis native passed away at Sanctuary Hospice House in Tupelo with family and friends by his side.
Cristil began calling MSU sporting events in 1953. He was the radio voice of Bulldog football and basketball for nearly six decades until his retirement in 2011.
Sometimes the best offense is a good defense.
The Mississippi State Bulldogs took advantage of a defensive touchdown on Saturday that was key in them picking up a 47-34 victory over the UAB Blazers.
Across the board, one thing stands out as a consistent advantage, competing at home.
The Starkville Yellowjackets swim team will enjoy that benefit today as they host the Starkville High Invitational.
The Mississippi State Bulldogs needed a spark coming out of the locker room at halftime.
Kivon Coman and the MSU special teams obliged.
After stopping the UAB Blazers on offense to open the third quarter, Coman blocked a punt by Hunter Mullins and Nick Griffin recovered for the Bulldogs at the 20-yard line.
There were three numbers that were a definite concern for Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen on Saturday.
When his Bulldogs gave up 88, 81 and 75 yards on touchdown passes against the UAB Blazers, it did not make Mullen a happy man.
Mullen pretty much informed the defensive coaches after the game that there would be an early wakeup call today.
Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott became the first player in Mississippi State history to throw for at least four touchdowns while simultaneously rushing for over 100 yards.
He accomplished the feat with five touchdowns and 111 yards rushing in Saturday's 47-34 victory over the UAB Blazers at Davis Wade Stadium.
It was all about going the distance on Friday night for the Starkville High School Yellowjackets.
Whether it was off the foot of Michael Godley or with the passing of quarterback Brady Davis to wide receiver AJ Brown, the Jackets had the knack for the big number.
The results was 34-3 victory over the rival West Point Green Wave at Yellowjacket Stadium.
Led by defense.Â
Four grueling quarters were played between Starkville Academy and Washington School, but through it all, the Volunteers had the unit to stand strong for a 24-0 shutout over the Generals Friday night.
