Robin Roberts has made it known she’s a big fan of the Mississippi State Bulldogs. And that was even before Mississippi State knocked off the No. 1 seed Connecticut Huskies.
Thanks to Morgan William’s buzzer beater, the Bulldogs stunned unbeaten Connecticut on Friday night. And afterwards, the Good Morning America anchor came into the team locker room and addressed the Bulldogs after the awesome win.

Mississippi State will now take on the South Carolina Gamecocks, a team they had lost to in the SEC Tournament a little less than a month ago. The Gamecocks advanced to their first national championship game when they knocked off Stanford on Friday night.
Who ever wins, it will be either Mississippi State’s or South Carolina’s first national championship in school history. The game is set for a 6 p.m. tip on Sunday in Dallas. The game will be broadcast on ESPN. This is the first time two SEC teams will face each other in the women’s basketball championship game since 1996.
