It was a huge college football weekend, with 4 ranked matchups and some titans falling hard. My own alma mater, Florida State, suffered what is possibly the most embarrassing defeat in program history at the hands of Louisville. The Cardinals put up 63 points on the ‘Noles and all of Tallahassee is licking its wounds right now. That’s just one city, 280 miles to the west of Tallahassee the ENTIRE STATE OF MISSISSIPPI is shaking their heads, wondering what in the fuck happened on Saturday.
Every single major college football program in the Magnolia State lost on Saturday. Ole Miss hang TIGHT with Alabama but eventually lost 43-48, making FSU’s blowout by Louisville even more inexplicable, but I don’t want to get too off track here. One Reddit user posted the scores of every Mississippi team’s game on Saturday:
In case you were wondering:
Alcorn State lost to University of Arkansas – Pine Bluff: 43-45
Belhaven lost to Huntingdon College: 21-65
Delta State University lost to University of West Georgia: 24-34
Jackson State lost to Grambling State: 14-35
Millsaps lost to University of Chicago: 16-35
Mississippi College lost to West Alabama: 13-38
Mississippi State lost to LSU: 20-23
Mississippi Valley lost to Texas Southern: 0-31
Ole Miss lost to Alabama: 43-48
Southern Mississippi lost to Troy: 31-37
I think it’s safe to say that Saturday, September 18th, 2016 was the single worst college football day in Mississippi history. Not only did every college football team in MS lose but FOUR of them were beaten by teams from Alabama, Mississippi’s border rival state.
