WATCH: Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen pulls off the “Dab”
It’s hard to imagine emotions running higher than they were in the Mississippi State locker room late Saturday. The Bulldogs erased an 11-point lead with 13 fourth-quarter points only to fall behind again late.
A 14-yard pass from quarterback Dak Prescott to receiver Fred Ross with 3:05 to play regained that lead and a blocked field goal in the waning seconds secured a 51-50 roller-coaster win.
Of course coach Dan Mullen had some heart-felt words for his team:
“I told you guys I loved you before the game,” said Mullen. “I loved the way you played tonight.”
That’s when Mullen became run-over with emotions. He tried to get a few words out … couldn’t, then tried again. He gave up putting a voice to his feelings with a final “Wow” and then did what just about any 43-year-old man does when he’s so happy he can’t talk.
Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen and the Bulldogs celebrate in the locker room after a thrilling 51-50 win over Arkansas.
Mullen did his best “Dab” to the delight of every player in the room.
