  Mississippi State linebacker Willie Gay Jr. says he's bypassing his senior season to enter the NFL draft. Gay announced his decision Monday on Twitter. Gay, who grew up in Starkville, Mississippi, said that "this city and university will always hold a special place in my heart as the only home I've ever known." Gay recorded 48 tackles, five sacks and two interceptions in 2018. He played only five games this season and had 28 tackles, 3 1/2 tackles for loss, two fumble recoveries and one interception. He was one of 10 Mississippi State players withheld from eight games this season because of NCAA violations involving an academic tutor. - AP College 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
