|Coach Mullen at Post-game interview!|
First, Starkville (MS) High. The Yellowjackets won last night (10/23/2015) to 8-1 on the year and 4-0 in Region 2-6A. They go to Vicksburg next Friday for their toughest road test of the year with Warren Central High (also 8-1, 4-0). This is the next to last regular season game for both teams and both have already clinched a play-off spot. So this game is for positioning. If SHS wins, we clinch first in the division with one game left. A loss, and we much defeat Clinton High in our last game for the second seed. If the unthinkable happens, and we lose the last two games, we will be the third or fourth seed - depending on what other teams do - and will be on the road for the first week of the playoffs. (The one & two seeds in each region are at home the first week.) Sooooo - Go Jackets. Lets finish the regular season with a ten game win streak as we head into the playoffs.
Mississippi State leads currently 28-13 (at the half) over the UK Wildcats. If we keep it up (and according to ESPN, Coach Dan Mullen is 46-1 at MSU when leading at the half - so the odds are good) MSU will be 6-2 and bowl eligible with four games left. So - Keep winning Bulldogs. The more wins we have - the better the bowl game we get to play in.
Everyone have a great day!
ADDENDUM: Game ended short time ago, final MSU-42 UK-16.
