Dogs over Bama 24-16!!! WooHoo!!! Our first SEC road win in 23 games!! And boy was it good!!! The only time we were behind was on Bama's first possession, they score a field goal. After that, it was all MSU!! As I think back, Bama has NOT scored an offensive touchdown on MSU in 2 years now - this year's only touchdown for the Crimson Tide was a pick by the defense, the rest of their score came thru the foot of their field goal kicker. I would have to say, however, that the Georgia game was still our best played game in spite of our loss to them but this one is right on its heels - I'm still high from this win! You should have heard the crowd...oh wait, that's right, you couldn't hear them over the roar of the couple hundred or so MSU fans that were partying the afternoon away :) The 90000+ Bama fans were stone silent quite awhile during this game although they did have stretchs where they cheered their team on to a hopeless game. We held Bama on several occassions to a field goal when they were down very close to a touchdown - one time the ball was on the 2 yard line but our defense held fast and forced the kick. MSU is considered doormat of the SEC but there's hope for us yet. Right this second, we have a record that is equal to our rival 90 miles to the north - they are doing no better then us at all and our rivalry continues when we play them Thanksgiving weekend. But first....our first off week this season is this weekend and what good timing (although, I would prefer it had been much earlier) as we have Arkansas coming to our house and a very good Arkansas team they are. 9-1 on the season and flying high. We'll have to play our best game of the season if we're to have any hope at all. But we can do it, just ride that momentum of a BIG win over Bama onto Scott field and we can do it. GO DAWGS GO!!!!!!!!!
