WOW! What a week +

You can't spell Fumble without U M !
Wow!  After winning a "must win" game against Arkansas (on Nov. 23rd) in overtime, MSU did it again against Ole Miss on Thanksgiving night.  This was an historic "Egg Bowl" for several reasons.  First, Dan Mullen became only the second MSU coach to win 4 of his first 5 games against Ole Miss. (The other being Allyn McKeen beginning in 1939).  Second, this was the first time in "Egg Bowl" history that a game went to overtime.  Third, this is the first time in MSU history that they are bowl eligible 4 years in a row. (Click here for ESPN video highlights.) Three possible bowls are being speculated on for the Bulldogs, but most folks making bowl predictions are saying they will play in the BBVA Compass Bowl (on January 4th) against Rutgers.  This prediction comes with a caveat though.  Rutgers is currently 5-6 and must defeat the USF Bulls (2-9) on December 7th to become bowl eligible.
Everyone have a great day!
