Mississippi State football

Mississippi State quarterback Will Rogers, middle, celebrates with his wide receivers Jamire Calvin (6), Rufus Harvey (82) and Rara Thomas (0) during last Saturday’s game against Memphis.

It’s just one game, but the Bulldogs look like they are going to be a team effort in year three under head coach Mike Leach.

Will Rogers threw for a career-high 450 yards in the opening game of the season in what became a 49-23 blowout of Memphis. In the win, Rogers’ five touchdowns went to five different receivers and 12 players caught passes in the victory.
