Hail State! Beat Auburn!!

This weekend was the best weekend EVER as a Mississippi State fan!  I can only hope that this will continue the entire year!  College Game Day was in Starkvegas, MS!  That is so unbelievable!  Never have we hosted such large events in the city of Starkville as we have the last two weekends.  Last weekend was SEC Nation and this weekend College Game Day!  We traveled over to Starkville Friday to set up our tents for tailgating.  It was already a madhouse in town.  We got our normal spot and spent the rest of the day looking over all the sites of College Game Day!

And of course we had to get some Bully Icecream!!

Saturday we headed back to Starkville bright and early for a full day of tailgating and Mississippi State Football!  It was such a treat to be with great friends from college and a few of my favorites from Fayette stopped by to see us all!

Finally it was time for the big game. We had planned to just tailgate, but at the last minute two of the littles decided to stay at the tailgate with Julia and Trey so Savannah and I got to go to the game.  And what a game it was.  State took the early lead 21-0 and never let the Tigers take the lead the entire game.  It was a great defensive and offensive battle.  Everytime the Tigers showed a little momentum, the Bulldogs answered back!  I was so proud of my great university and the class and sportsmanship the fans showed after the game.  Everyone stayed in their seats cheering, singing Maroon and White, and Hail State!  So happy to have been part of the great day even if we did get drenched in the down pour!

The kids were so excited after the game to get pictures with a few of the players and cheerleaders!

And what better a way to celebrate a huge win over Auburn and being ranked Number 1 in both polls is to celebrate with a little more Maroon and White on Sunday morning at church!
