100 Days of MSU Football - Day 54

Today we celebrate only 54 days remaining until the 2012 football season by remembering the longest field goal in Mississippi State history.

In 1985, Artie Crosby kicked a 54 yard field goal against Memphis State to help the Bulldogs defeat the Tigers 31-28. Crosby's kick, although it happened 25+ years ago, still stands as the longest field goal in Bulldogs history. Several chip shots fell just short (of the record) at 53 yards long, including two by Kinney Jordan (one in 1975 and one in 1976), and a 53 yarder by Brian Hazelwood against Memphis in 1997. Random but interesting note: 4 of the 14 longest field goals in MSU history were kicked in games against Memphis (Memphis State).
