Mississippi State crazy fumble touchdown vs Alabama (Video)


The Mississippi State Bulldogs are making a serious game of it against the heavily favored Alabama Crimson Tide. After a big forced fumble and recovery by the Bulldogs, they drove into the red zone and were threatening.

On a crazy play, quarterback Tyler Russell took the ball around the left end and was gang tackled at the five yard line. As he was being picked up, big men from both sides converged for the dog pile and Russell started floating towards the end zone. Then he was stripped of the football.

As the pile moved towards the goal line, big offensive lineman Charles Siddoway saw the bouncing football and dove to take it away from Alabama defenders in the end zone scrum. The play got MSU to within three at 10-7 midway through the 3rd quarter. The Tide have scored however and lead 17-7.
