Mississippi St. sets records, blasts East Tennessee St. 56-7

Starkville, Miss. (AP) On a chilly Saturday in Starkville, Miss., less than a week away from the Battle for the Golden Egg against rival Ole Miss, Mississippi State just needed to make it through healthy and with a win vs. East Tennessee State in a non-conference game.

The Bulldogs handled their business quickly and did what they needed to do with a 56-7 blowout win on Saturday afternoon.

Highlighting the day was Will Rogers, who threw for five touchdowns and moved into ninth in SEC history with 10,189 yards, passing Ole Miss' Eli Manning heading into the Bulldogs' Thanksgiving Day showdown with the Rebels in Oxford.
