It was almost like watching a video game on Saturday.
If only it had been, the Mississippi State Bulldogs could have maybe found a way to pull the plug on it.
The numbers put up by quarterback Johnny Manziel and the Texas A&M Aggies were crazy.
Texas A&M had 386 yards of total offense by halftime and ended up with 693 to soundly defeat Mississippi State 38-13 at Davis Wade Stadium.
The Mississippi State Bulldogs were not able to produce on either side of the football on Saturday and ultimately the game went the way of Texas A&M.
Comparing the two sides, it was clear that it was as MSU coach Dan Mullen stated â€śas bad a performance offensively as weâ€™ve had here in quite a long time.â€ť
There were quite a few eyes looking upon the progress of Mississippi State and Texas A&M on Saturday.
WEST POINT â€“ The Starkville High School basketball teams opened the season on Saturday at the West Point Classic and both dropped close games to Greenwood.
For the Lady Yellowjackets, their loss came in overtime 67-65, while the boys lost a 61-58 decision.
The SHS girls had a strong first half, leading 30-17 at halftime, but couldn't sustain it in the second half.
Although the district was already won, the Starkville High School football team had several reasons to play hard in the last regular season game.
The Yellowjackets beat the Neshoba Central Rockets 21-10 Friday night at Yellowjacket Stadium.
SENATOBIA â€“ The Starkville Academy Volunteers saw a tremendous rally come up short in the fourth quarter and couldn't hold off the Magnolia Heights Chiefs in a 40-28 loss on Friday night.
With the loss, Starkville Academy's season came to an end with a final record of 5-7.
ACKERMAN â€“ The Ackerman Indians took the lead in their playoff game against Broad Street Friday night and never looked back.
When action ceased, it was the Indians taking a 38-0 victory over Broad Street.
CRAWFORD â€“ The East Oktibbeha Titans played the Weir Lions in what is likely to be the last football game in Weir High School's history.
Weir is currently awaiting a decision from the U.S. Justice Department that could scatter current students at Weir throughout Choctaw County. Weir currently holds grades pre-kindergarten to 12th grade.
EUPORA â€“ The Eupora Eagles started the first round of the Class 2A playoffs by beating Coahoma County 49-0 at home Friday.
Eupora's stingy defense had its third shutout of the year.
Quarterback Trey Pittman threw for two touchdowns for the Eagles, a 12-yard reception to Jamall Roby and a 6-yard catch to Juwan Roby.
The senior football players at Starkville High School can get out the brooms with a victory over the Neshoba Central Rockets tonight.
If the Yellowjackets can take care of business at home, they will cap back-to-back 7-0 seasons in Class 5A, Region 2, District 6. The kickoff against the Rockets is set for 7 p.m.
