It's not uncommon to see the name of a Mississippi State running back listed within the receiving statistics.
Sometimes a Bulldog receiver can rush the football at times.
MSU players at the skilled positions are often asked to multi-task and it's all for the good of the team.
In practice, the Bulldog running backs work on catching the football and go into games knowing there's a real possibility they will be able to help in that area.
"You have to be able to do it and we can't be one dimensional," MSU sophomore Josh Robinson said. "You can't just run the ball, (but) you have to also catch the ball. By me, not even starting at running back in high school, I've got good hands so that's a huge benefit for me."
