STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi State scored 49 points
against Memphis in an easy victory on Saturday. That's the most the
Bulldogs have scored in a game since 2002.
Impressive? Yes. But surprising? Second-year coach Dan Mullen
doesn't think so.
Improved quarterback play is the most obvious difference.
Redshirt freshman Tyler Russell completed 13 of 16 passes for 256
yards and tied a school record with four touchdowns against
Memphis. Junior Chris Relf, who started, completed 7 of 9 passes
for 116 yards, one touchdown and one interception.
MSU coach Dan Mullen says he was pleased with his quarterbacks,
but says all facets of the offense has improved. The Bulldogs now
face a quick turnaround before playing Auburn on Thursday in
