Mississippi State upsets No. 22 Florida 10-7

By Jeff Shepard – bio | email

GAINESVILLE, FL (AP) – Pascagoula's Vick Ballard ran for 98 yards, Chris Relf added 82 and a touchdown on the ground and Mississippi State upset No. 22 Florida 10-7 on Saturday night.

The Bulldogs ran early, ran late and ended up running out of the Swamp with a signature win for second-year coach Dan Mullen.

Mississippi State (5-2, 2-2 SEC) controlled the clock, dictated the tempo and kept Florida's mostly inept offense on the sideline.

The Gators (4-3, 2-3) lost consecutive home games for the first time since 2003 and dropped three in a row for the first time since the Steve Spurrier era. Yep, coach Urban Meyer has accomplished something that even former coach Ron Zook never did.
