Outback Bowl Postgame Thread: MSU 33, Georgia 30, 3OT


WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO


Well, that was exciting. The offense couldn't get anything going in the first half, but the defense kept us in it (even adding a pick-six to bring us within two points) and the offense finally got back on track, at least enough to even up the game in the final minute with a Keshawn Martin catch taking the ball down to the 1 yard line and a Le'Veon Bell bulldozer run to take it from there. It looked like it was over when Kirk Cousins was intercepted in the first overtime, but Georgia made no real attempt to move the ball forward and paid the price when their 42 yard FG attempt went wide. Both teams traded FGs in the second OT. In the third OT, a high but catchable third-down pass to Martin was dropped and forced us to attempt another FG, but the defense held strong with a near-interception, a William Gholston sack, and finally a blocked field goal by Anthony Rashad White (I think; box score doesn't say, my DVR won't let me rewind to it, and the wire recaps aren't up yet).

First bowl win since 2001. Back-to-back 11-win seasons. A full recap will have to wait for sanity to return. For now, WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
