Quote of the game:

“We expected to win the game. I can guarantee in that locker room, there’s not one person that didn’t expect to win the game coming in here tonight.” – MSU head coach Dan Mullen said.

Song to describe game: Whatever She’s Got by David Nail – This song had nothing to do with the game, but it’s my new favorite song.

What it means: The Bulldogs are still two wins away from becoming bowl eligible. They play in Little Rock, Ark. next weekend against the Razorbacks of Arkansas. They host in-state rival Ole Miss Thanksgiving night. Both games are winnable. The Crimson Tide are in good shape to make the national championship for a third-straight year.
