Bulldogs move to 4-0 with 30-10 win over Jags

From the Mississippi State athletic department

STARKVILLE, MS -  The No. 23-ranked Bulldogs overcame a sluggish first quarter to roll past South Alabama 30-10 Saturday in front of a Scott Field crowd of 55,186, the 19th straight sellout.

MSU (4-0) has outscored its three opponents at home this season 114-29. The Bulldogs are now 4-0 for the first time since 1999.

LaDarius Perkins ensured the Bulldogs struck first on his 44-yard scoring scamper for a 7-0 advantage.

Two possessions later, the lead went to 14-0 on a 2-yard run by Dak Prescott with 5:38 left.

Devon Bell made it 17-0 on a 42-yard field goal, and the defense set up the final points of the half when Nickoe Whitley intercepted a Ross Methany pass and returned it 66 yards to the South Alabama 26 with 30 seconds to play.

Four plays later, Bell struck again from 42 yards as MSU went into the half up 20-0.

In the third quarter, quarterback Tyler Russell scored on a keeper from 1 yard out.

Bell accounted for Mississippi State's final points when he drilled his third field goal of the evening, this time from 31 yards, for a 30-3 lead.

The Jaguars (1-3) finally scored a touchdown when C.J. Bennett connected with Greg Hollinger on an 18-yard scoring strike.

Perkins ran for 69 yards, while Russell completed 13 of his 27 passes for 171 yards.
