Jerious Norwood drives toward the goal line

A 31-yard catch and run by freshman tailback Jerious Norwood had Mississippi State Bulldog fans on their feet in the first quarter of Thursday night’s ESPN nationally televised football game with Auburn University. The Bulldog’s first Southeastern Conference match of the season, which drew more than 52,500 fans to Davis Wade Stadium at Scott Field, ended with a score of 42-14 in favor of the Tigers. MSU next plays Louisiana State University in a Sept. 28 Jefferson Pilot Network-broadcast game to begin at 11:30 a.m.
