Wednesday was a bittersweet day for Mississippi State, as it saw the end of one Bulldog’s career and the delayed start of another’s. Here’s what you need to catch up on the news.
Here are two things to know:
- Linebacker Beniquez Brown announced Wednesday he was leaving Starkville early to declare for the NFL Draft. Brown had a fantastic career for Mississippi State, but the highlight of his time in maroon and white may have come this year, when his late-game blocked kick secured a win for the Bulldogs against Arkansas in one of the most exciting games in recent memory.
- One Mississippi State 2016 commit has decided to enroll in junior college instead of MSU next semester. “Minor Setback 4 A Major Comeback,” he tweeted.
