MSU game puts temporary pause in Cruisin' the Coast for fans

Cruisin' the Coast stopped for about three hours Saturday - for Mississippi State fans, that is. Veteran cruisers parked their cars and packed into Coast sports bars to catch the big game and cheer on their Bulldogs against the Auburn Tigers, 38-23.

But, MSU fans haven't always let their cruisin' schedule be disrupted for a game. For four years, Mississippi State fan Mark Patrick didn't do what he did Saturday. He stopped driving his 1966 Ford Bronco during Cruisin' the Coast to watch his team play. He said this year is different and a sign of things to come.

"We're looking at a national title," he said. "We want to be a contender year in and year out. Not just a one-year program."

And he's not the only one who changed plans for the break-out season. MSU sophomore Taylor Bertrand of Biloxi persuaded her parents to stop cruising the coast and cruise for a TV to watch her bulldogs play. She said the season has done a lot to pull the student body together.

"Just everyone being hyped up and having fun together,” she said. "It's been awesome. I don't think there's ever been that many people in the student section at one time."
