Big weekend in Starkville

Before leaving for Auburn, I got to go watch MSU’s volleyball team play Friday as they beat Niagara to open the Bulldog Invitational.

The full story is available here.

Also over the weekend in Starkville, Aaron Gordon’s soccer team split two matches in the Bulldog Classic, ending the weekend with a Sunday victory over Jackson State (story here).

MSU’s all-time leading goal-scorer Elisabeth Sullivan had another career day, recording the Bulldogs’ first hat trick since 2001.

A noteworthy note from Gordon on Twitter: MSU put eight freshmen into the starting lineup Sunday. To clarify, there are only 11 starting positions. So yeah, that’s a lot, and it worked out.

And while this wasn’t in Starkville, one more MSU team had a successful weekend, with cross country securing two top-five finishes in the Commodore Classic, which can be read about here.

As for football, scroll down a post if you missed my Sunday ThingamaBob column yesterday on the Auburn game, and check back in a few hours for more from Dan Mullen as we’ll visit with him for his weekly press conference at 1 p.m.
