Good afternoon, Stark Vegas! Today is a bad day because there’s no MSU athletic event going on today. Luckily, there’s still some good games to watch tonight, but we’ll get into that later.
MBB beats Alcorn State 88-65
In the only game any team played yesterday, the Bulldogs handled in-state foe Alcorn State by 22 points. Although the Braves’ Deshaw Andrews scored 26 points, he was the only one to score more than nine points.
Nick Weatherspoon and Lamar Peters each had 17 points, Reggie Perry had 16 points and 11 rebounds and Quinndary Weatherspoon added 14 points. The Bulldogs shot 45.8% from three-point range and went 11-for-14 from the free-throw line. Ben Howland’s squad will travel to Dayton, Ohio, on Friday to face the Flyers.

Wonder where State could go for its bowl game? Wilton Jackson has you covered. Here’s the current bowl projections for Mississippi State.
ACC-Big Ten Challenge tonight
There are some interesting games to watch tonight since MSU isn’t playing. The ACC-Big Ten Challenge gets into the full swing tonight. Last night, Nebraska beat Clemson and Boston College took down Minnesota, but tonight is when most teams play.
The two games that stick out are Michigan State at Louisville (7:30 p.m. ET, ESPN) and Indiana at Duke (9:30 p.m. ET, ESPN). Duke’s coming off of its first loss of the season and face a tough Hoosier team led by Archie Miller.
Mac Brown to UNC is official
UNC joins Kansas as the only schools whose head coaches in football and basketball have won a National Championship. I said yesterday that I don’t think there’s a middle ground, this will either go really well and set a future coach up to keep the program at a high level, or this will not go well and the Tar Heels are stuck in square one.
Urban Meyer: ‘I plan to coach’
According to Eleven Warriors, Urban Meyer said he plans to coach next season. This follows rumors that he wouldn’t return to Ohio State next season.
Sorry, Michigan fans.
