Hail Mary: Egg Bowl still important, but in different ways

Posted less than 6 hours ago in College Sports

The relevance of the Egg Bowl, now back on Thanksgiving Day, has evolved in the past few years. It's a game where home-field advantage and point spreads have nothing to do with which team takes the trophy home. The rivalry gives the winner a year's worth of bragging rights.

Posted less than 6 hours ago in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- The disappointment of not making the NCAA tournament has worn off for the Mississippi State women's soccer team. With only two of the Southeastern Conference's record nine teams still alive in the 64-team tournament, most of the nation has turned its sights toward 2018 and beyond. After all, recruiting in Olympic sports like women's soccer often is mapped out two and three years in advance, so there has been plenty of work for Tom Anagnost and his coaches at MSU to tackle.

Posted less than 6 hours ago in College Sports

Phillips, MSU seniors prepare for final game Thursday

Posted yesterday in College Sports

Posted yesterday in College Sports

McNelis likes what she sees from No. 7 MSU

Posted 11/20/2017 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- Joye-Lee McNelis heard the whispers. Coaches, like in any profession, talk about their peers, so the Southern Mississippi women's basketball coach was curious to see if some in her business were right when they said Mississippi State wouldn't be as strong after losing four key players from a program-record 34-win season and a trip to the national title game. McNelis saw an effort Sunday that should put all of that talk to rest.

Auburn's Johnson: Iron Bowl 'should be one for the ages'

Posted 11/20/2017 in College Sports

Auburn's Kerryon Johnson doesn't have to be a soothsayer to predict what the Iron Bowl will be like. No. 6 Auburn (9-2, 6-1 Southeastern Conference) will play host to No. 1 Alabama (11-0, 7-0) at 2:30 p.m. Saturday (WCBI) in a rivalry game that always captivates the state, but this time it's all dressed up with national championship implications.

Schaefer shows closer's mentality in victory

Posted 11/17/2017 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- Blair Schaefer has earned the moniker "shooter." You'll hear opposing coaches or players shout it out as the 5-foot-7 senior guard sprints from wing to wing, probing for an opening in a defense.
