Three cheers for Sylvester Croom and the Mississippi State Bulldogs. They're bowl eligible for the first time since 2000. ANTHONY JOHNSON had a 100 yard interception return for a touchdown in the first half as State stunned Alabama 17-12 Saturday in Starkville, MS. J
ohn Parker Wilson tried to drive the Tide late but Titus Brown sacked him around mid-field to end the threat. Brown, ironically, is from Tuscaloosa.
The Bulldogs have turned the corner in the 4th season under Croom. They are now 6-4, 3-3 in SEC play.
