Day 98: The 1998 Mississippi State Bulldogs - SEC West Champions

98_team_sec_title_medium
This was a slam-dunk pick to represent 98 days until the kick-off of the 2012 Mississippi State football season.
The 1998 team was special in a lot of ways:
  1. State beat Alabama for the 3rd straight season
  2. James Johnson rushed for a then school record 1,383 yards.
  3. The game-winning drive led by Wayne Madkin and the field-goal by Brian Hazelwood to beat Arkansas 22-21. Which led to...
  4. The Bulldogs making their only trip to the SEC Championship Game where they led 14-10 in the 4th quarter, but lost 24-14 to Tennessee (won the National Title that year).


98 Yards - The longest rush in MSU history came in 1979 against Southern Miss when Stanley Howell broke off a 98 yard TD run. However, it was Mississippi State's only score of the game. They lost 21-7 to the Mustard Buzzards in Starkville.

Check back tomorrow for Day 97. Hint: It involves a rather large man on the defensive line.
