Welcome to Game 2 here in Tuscaloosa as Mississippi State attempts to continue its winning streak away from Dudy Noble Field. Today’s game is being televised on CBS Sports Network. It’s a great afternoon weather-wise so hopefully it’ll stay that way. MSU will wear maroon hats, maroon “Mississippi State” jerseys and white pants while Alabama is clad in crimson hats and white uniforms.

I have covered Mississippi State in some capacity since 2004 and joined the Daily Journal staff in 2013. I enjoy short walks on the beach, performing concerts in my car and watching professional wrestling.

    Dogs shutout Bama!!! Aggies stink it up and give the game to Da bears!!! Looking like Dogs get a #3 or #4 seed.

  • Roy Munsun

    Looks like a tie is all State can get, now. Hey they could hang a co-championship banner like the black bears did in 2003, when they “tied” LSU in football. I guess not! No false banners for State.

  • Roy Munsun

    Speaking of co-championships…if the black bears were really co-champs in ’03, why didn’t they play one half of the SEC Championship game? Huh?

  • howdy55

    Hey PoopDog, I mean Roy, I mean Nigel, You Bulldog fans really have a loser here. This dope is more full of it than my granny right before her last bout with constipation.

  • Roy Munsun

    Yes, Howdy…right before she pooped you out…
