STARKVILLE (AP) — Mississippi State quarterback Chris Relf’s last seven passes in regulation missed their mark. He hadn’t completed a pass since the third quarter.
But when he finally did — a 17-yarder to LaDarius Perkins — it was a game-winner.
Relf hit Perkins on MSU’s second play of overtime, sealing a 26-20 victory over Louisiana Tech on Saturday night. (September 26, 2011, Page 2B)
STARKVILLE (AP) — Mississippi State hasn’t been able to beat anyone in its division other than Ole Miss since Dan Mullen arrived.
With No. 3 LSU in Starkville tonight, now would be a good time to start.
For all the good the third-year coach has done since his arrival, Mississippi State is just 2-9 against Southeastern Conference Western Division foes — with both wins against their in-state rival. The Bulldogs are winless against Arkansas, Auburn, Alabama and LSU.
DENVER (AP) — As expected, former Ole Miss Rebel Drew Pomeranz was quite nervous in his major league debut.

MEMPHIS (AP) — Over the past week, Memphis was fond of saying that Thursday night’s game against No. 20 Mississippi State would give a good indication about how much the program has progressed. The apparent answer?

STARKVILLE (AP) — Like most football teams, Mississippi State usually spends a lot of time in film study during the week, trying to dissect the strengths and weaknesses of the upcoming opponent.
The problem is that might be useless for Thursday’s season opener against the Memphis Tigers at the Liberty Bowl in Memphis.
The Southeastern Conference is staying just as it is — for now.
However, the game of major college conference realignment appears far from finished.
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Zack Cozart’s lasting memories of his major-league debut will be better when he looks back at the night’s souvenirs. Right now, the former Ole Miss Rebel’s biggest memory is the rally-killing double play he hit into. (more…) (July 8, 2011, Page 7A)

MEMPHIS (AP) — Harrison Frazar now knows what he’s going to be doing the next couple years, and his work place will be on the golf course with his clubs, not helping manage tournaments or working with the PGA Tour.
