SMITH COLUMN: Backup Dogs perform well during victory

September 8, 2013


Mississippi State football fans were introduced to several new players and got to know others better on Saturday afternoon.
With injuries to several Bulldogs, it gave backups a chance to shine during a 51-7 victory over the Alcorn State Braves at Davis Wade Stadium.
It was announced prior to the game that Mississippi State senior running back and captain LaDarius Perkins wasn't going to play because of an injury.
That gave Bulldogs like Derrick Milton, Ashton Shumpert and Brandon Holloway a chance to show what they could do.
Milton took advantage of the situation with a pair of touchdowns in the first quarter, one rushing and one receiving.
