Since Dan Mullen arrived at MSU in 2009, there has been a triangle of FCS teams come through Starkville.
- 2009: Jackson State
- 2010: Alcorn State
- 2011: UT-Martin
- 2012: Jackson State
- 2013: Alcorn State
- 2014: UT-Martin
The only logical answer of who will be the missing 2015 opponent is Jackson State, right?
Now, on the the 2011 UT-Martin game, a 55-17 Bulldog victory.
Vick Ballard had 102 yards rushing, and Nick Griffin got some action as a freshman with 10 carries for 80 yards. The offense notched 570 total yards. The defense didn’t play lights out by any means giving up 454.
Several big plays for touchdowns in the game. Johnthan Banks had a 65 yards punt return for a touchdown. Chad Bumphis caught a 78 yard TD pass, and Ballard ran it home 54 yards from the endzone.
