100 Days of MSU Football - Day 82

As a State fan, I'll be the first to admit that we haven't always been known to have the most prolific offenses. Now, that seems to be changing under the Dan Mullen regime, but prior to Mullen an MSU offense could often be referred to as "stagnant", "slow moving", or "like watching paint dry" (via my Grandfather). But on November 10, 1910, Mississippi State's offense was anything BUT stagnant and boring, as on that day the Dogs set what is still today an all-time record for points scored.

The opponent, if you want to call them that, was Howard College*, and they were no match for the mighty maroons, as State scored 14 (14!) touchdowns that day en route to an 82-0 dismantling of the Howard College Bulldogs. It certainly was not the greatest of seasons in 1910 for James Donnely and HC, as they also received a 78-0 loss to Auburn and a 56-0 loss to mighty Chattanooga. State went on to finish that season 7-2 under the direction of William Chadwick.

*Howard College is the school we now know as Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama.
