  Kylin Hill has made his decision. The SEC's leading rusher has chosen to forgo his senior season and enter the 2020 NFL Draft. Hill announced his decision in a Twitter post. He mentioned that he will still play in the Music City Bowl. In his Tweet, Hill said he has spent "many days and nights" looking back on his three years at Mississippi State. The Columbus High School product said he is grateful for the opportunity that MSU has given him to pursue his dream of playing professionally. Hill has 1,347 rushing yards this season. He needs 45 more in the Music City Bowl to break Anthony Dixon's program record for the most rushing yards in a single season. Hill was named to the All-SEC First Team by the Associated Press and the All-SEC Second Team by the conference's coaches. He won the Conerly Trophy, which is awarded annually to the best college football player in the state of Mississippi. - The Clarion Ledger

  2019 ALL-SEC SECOND TEAM (COACHES): RB Kylin Hill, Mississippi State,...Hill, who was a first-teamer by The Associated Press on Monday, joins Anthony Dixon (2009) and Josh Robinson (2014) as the only running backs in MSU history to earn All-SEC honors from both the AP and SEC coaches since the inception of the coaches' team in 1999. A native of Columbus, Mississippi, Hill finished the regular season with eight 100-yard rushing games, tying the single-season school record. He needs just 45 rushing yards to set the school single-season record, which is currently owned by Dixon (1,391 in 2009). Hill's 1,347 rushing yards in 12 games this year lead the SEC and rank eighth in the Power 5 among running backs. He is one of seven Power 5 running backs with 1,300-plus rushing yards and 10-plus rushing touchdowns this season. - Mississippi State Football

  Cameron Dantzler has played his last game in maroon and white. The Mississippi State junior cornerback announced on Twitter on Friday afternoon that he will declare for the 2020 NFL Draft. Dantzler will not play in the team's upcoming bowl game. Dantzler thanked God for the opportunity to play at MSU, and he thanked the university, the coaching staff and his teammates for making his collegiate career successful. "After praying over it and discussing with my family, I have decided to pursue my dream of playing in the NFL," Dantzler said in the Tweet.

Danztler has five interceptions as a Bulldog, including two this season despite missing three games due to injury. He has compiled 108 total tackles and 20 passes defended in his career. Dantzler's departure means younger players will be in line for larger roles next year at cornerback. Jarrian Jones and Martin Emerson Jr. have shown flashes of promise as true freshmen. - The Clarion Ledger

  DEC 2 SEC OFFENSIVE LINEMAN OF THE WEEK: Darryl Williams, C, Mississippi State,...Williams was the Bulldogs' highest grader (77.3 according to Pro Football Focus) on the line in a 21-20 win over rival Ole Miss that saw the Bulldogs put up 318 yards of total offense...Williams did not allow a pressure on the night and paved the way for 210 rushing yards, including 67 through his middle position. - SEC Football

  Mississippi flushed away a golden chance at the Golden Egg. Luke Logan missed a 35-yard extra point after Ole Miss receiver Elijah Moore was penalized for celebrating a touchdown by crawling and pretending to urinate like a dog, and Mississippi State escaped with a 21-20 victory Thursday night in the 116th Egg Bowl. "That’s not who we are. We've been a disciplined team all year, and so just disappointed that happened," Rebels coach Matt Luke said. "That’s not who he is. Elijah is a good kid, and he just got caught up in the moment." Ole Miss (4-8, 2-6 Southeastern Conference) pulled within a point with 4 seconds remaining on Matt Corral's 2-yard pass to Moore, but Logan hooked the extra point after Moore cost the Rebels 15 yards. The extra yards also prevented Mississippi from going for a winning 2-point conversion. Mississippi State (6-6, 3-5 Southeastern Conference) beat Ole Miss at home for the first since 2013, possibly saving second-year coach Joe Moorhead's job. Moorhead was fiery in his defense of the job his staff has done with this team, overcoming a litany of academic suspensions and several injuries to key players. - AP College Football

  Mississippi State got a rare late-season break from SEC play on Saturday and took advantage of the opportunity. Tommy Stevens had two touchdown passes and ran for another as Mississippi State defeated Abilene Christian 45-7 on Saturday. Stevens had 165 yards passing and 88 yards rushing in the Bulldogs' final nonconference outing of the season. Kylin Hill added 153 yards rushing and had 88 yards receiving and a touchdown for Mississippi State (5-6). The Bulldogs rolled up 577 yards of offense and had 372 yards rushing.

"We did some good things in the run game and our defense held them to seven points," said Mississippi State coach Joe Moorhead. "But at the end of the day I was pleased with the win and we're ready to move forward with Egg Bowl week. We needed to execute in all three phases and have a sense of urgency and we saw that at times." Hill averaged 9.6 yards per carry against Abilene Christian and his 88-yard touchdown reception was the longest of his career. For the season the junior tailback has now rushed for 1,325 yards, which leads the SEC. "I've changed my running style and you have to change it up when they stack the box," said Hill. "I can't make too many moves and I have to be decisive." - Mississippi State/AP College Football

  Mississippi State's pre-game injury and suspension update was a mixed bag for the maroon and white ahead of the game against Arkansas. It looked promising for the Bulldogs on paper - literally. Per a statement printed on paper passed out by an MSU Athletics spokesperson, only one player from Mississippi State's two-deep depth chart was not playing. Senior defensive tackle Lee Autry was suspended for a violation of team rules for the sixth time this season. Autry is State's starting defensive tackle. - Clarion Ledger

  Both Arkansas and Mississippi State entered Saturday's game having underplayed to expectations. Both its head coaches have been suggested to have tenuous, at best, job security. It was supposed to gnashing and ugly, but close. Only the ugly part came to fruition. Mississippi State snapped a four-game losing streak, kept alive its chances for a .500 season and looked like a dangerous and elite SEC team. Arkansas looked out of gas, out to sea and out of hope, having been dealt a 54-24 demolition at the hands of its closest competition in the league standings.

Mississippi State (4-5, 2-4) ran for more yards on the ground in the first half, 312, than it had in any individual game to that point. Kylin Hill, who finished with a career-high 234 yards rushing, had 198 of those in the first half-hour on just 13 carries, including three for touchdowns. Tommy Stevens, making his first start in three weeks, ran for another 60 and chipped in a 33-yard touchdown pass in the first half. Mississippi State led by four touchdowns, 38-10, at halftime. Moorhead had challenged Hill, the SEC's leading rusher, to do more the last two weeks. Before last week's game against Texas A&M, he had run for just 92 on 43 carries in the previous three games. His 150 yards versus the Aggies was just a warm-up. "He had been pushing me," Hill said. "My last couple performances, that wasn't me. I was doing too much dancing in the backfield. I can do it, but that's not my kind of style. I had to get back to being more aggressive." - Mississippi State/AP College Football

  Mississippi State leads the SEC and is tied for seventh in the nation with 54 running plays of 10 yards or more. Running back Kylin Hill and freshman dual-threat quarterback Garrett Shrader lead the way in that category with 22 such plays each. Hill ranks fourth in the league with 643 yards rushing with five touchdowns. He has a knack for making first downs and 33 of his 134 carries this season have resulted in first downs. Shrader has ran for 440 yards this season and topped 100 yards in a win over Kentucky earlier this season with a career-best 125 yards rushing. - AP College Football

  Something will have to give Saturday when Mississippi State brings the Southeastern Conference's leading rusher into No. 7 Auburn to face one of the league's stingiest run defenses. Mississippi State's Kylin Hill has run for over 100 yards in each of his team's first four games and has a total of 551 yards rushing — 143 more than anyone else in the SEC. Auburn (4-0, 1-0 SEC) features one of the nation's top defensive lines and allows just 89.5 rushing yards per game to rank second in the SEC. That group will be seeking revenge after Auburn lost 23-9 to Mississippi State (3-1, 1-0) last season.

"They have a lot of experience, a couple of NFL guys on the defensive line," Hill said. "The majority of the success we had last year was the play calling by coach (Joe) Moorhead, and he called the right plays against the right defense." Hill rushed for 126 yards and former Mississippi State quarterback Nick Fitzgerald ran for 195 yards against Auburn last season. Now that Fitzgerald has departed, Hill has taken over as the featured player in Mississippi State's rushing attack. Last year, Hill had 117 rushing attempts in 11 games. After four games in 2019, Hill has already totaled an SEC-leading 91 carries. The only Football Bowl Subdivision players with more carries are Oklahoma State's Chuba Hubbard (103), Boston College's A.J. Dillon (99) and Florida State's Cam Akers (98). - AP College Football

  SEPT 23/WEEK 4 SEC FRESHMAN OF THE WEEK: Garrett Shrader, QB, Mississippi State,...Shrader, making his first career start, accounted for 305 yards of total offense, including rushing for 125 yards on 11 carries, to lead MSU past Kentucky, 28-13 in its SEC opener...Shrader was just the second MSU true freshman QB to start in an SEC game in the last 12 years (Damian Williams, 2013 Egg Bowl the other). Shrader was an efficient 17-of-22 for 180 yards through the air. Shrader accounted for all six of the Bulldogs' 20+ yard plays in the game, including rushes of 49- and 36-yards. With the score a one-possession game and 4:32 remaining, Shrader engineered a six-play, 75 yard drive and extended the drive with a 49-yard rush on third down...The winning drive culminated with a touchdown and put the game out of reach. Shrader became the first MSU QB in school history to rush for over 100 yards and pass for over 100 yards in his first career start. He was the first to do it overall since senior Nick Fitzgerald last season. - SEC Football
