This seems to be happening quite often to SEC teams lately.
Mississippi State took on South Alabama on Saturday, a member of the Sun Belt that has only had a football program since 2009. That didn’t phase the Jaguars, though, as they went into Starkville and came away with a 21-20 victory to upset Mississippi State.
Mississippi State took a 17-0 lead into halftime, but the Bulldogs imploded in the fourth quarter, allowing South Alabama to rally and take the lead with a touchdown with 57 seconds left.
The game wasn’t over yet, though, as Mississippi State tried to drive down the field, and they actually had a short field goal to win the game. Usually reliable kicker Westin Graves missed the attempt, though, as it clanked off the left upright.
What a loss for Dan Mullen and Mississippi State. Huge win for South Alabama, though, so congrats to them.
