Yesterday Mississippi State played South Carolina here in Starkville. The game was at 11:21 (yuck) so we got up early, got ready, and were tailgating by 9 am. Normally with student tickets you have to go in right when the gates open to get decent seats, but we headed in at 10:30 and lucked out with awesome seats!
The weather was warm and sunny. I kind of wish it was colder though because I like seasonal weather and Mississippi has been a little too hot for my liking in October.
The team is coming!
The Dawgs scored first but the Gamecocks tied it up and the game was 7-7 at the half...and at the start of the 4th quarter. Then MSU scored a field goal to make the game 10-7 until about 3 minutes or so left in the game. SC scored a touchdown and the score was 10-14. MSU answered by making it to about the 30-yard line...where we should have easily been able to score, but in typical MSU fashion, the QB threw an interception. Why he was trying for such a long throw on the second down with 1:45 left to play I don't know, but I was pretty mad. It is SO HARD to be a State fan sometimes. I'm sick of the high school errors and excuses.
Dawgs, I love you, but you gotta do better.
We had an awesome rest of the afternoon tailgating and enjoying the weather.
Isn't this sign cool?
I also got to meet a blog friend, Brittany from Boots and Pearls! She was in town for the game with her fiance, Randy. They were both so nice and I loved getting to meet her!
Isn't she just too cute?
Zoe also had a blast tailgating. This girl just cracks me up!
And for those who asked, when we are in the game Zoe hangs out in my office on campus! She plays with her bones and a headless zebra until we come get her!
Don't even get me started on my Gators. So sad. This isn't the season I (we all) were hoping for, but in all kinds of weather we all stick together for F-L-O-R-I-D-A.
I was sad Tennessee also lost this weekend but I'd rather see LSU win the SEC than Alabama, so I don't mind as much if they remain undefeated.
And how bout that Clemson game! They pulled out a W right at the end! 7-0 Go Tigers!
How did your teams do this weekend? Did anyone do anything fall-ish? I love seeing fall decor and recipes and adventures!
