DAY 18: DON SMITH AND HIS 318 CAREER POINTS

Only 18 days until the Bulldogs are (hopefully) putting up a lot of points on the Jackson State Tigers. Like 50 or 60 points would be AWESOME. So, while I've got points on the brain I figure it's a good time to write about a player that is responsible for more points than any other Mississippi State football player ever: Don Smith.

Between 1983 and 1986, Smith was responsible for 318 points (52 TDs / 3 two-point conversions). Of the 52 TDs, he ran for 21 and passed for 31. He is also MSU's all-time leader in total offense with 7,079 yards (1868 rushing / 5229 passing) and yards-per-game average (165.0 ypg in 43 games).

Don Smith could ball, y'all. He's probably most remembered for his game-winning 62-yard TD run in MSU's upset at #8 Tennessee in 1986.
