No. 16 Mississippi State rallies past UMass

(TSX / STATS) -- STARKVILLE, Miss. -- Saturday's game between No. 16 Mississippi State and Massachusetts had the look of a trap.

With the Bulldogs' matchup against unbeaten Alabama looming, the crowd at Davis Wade Stadium was less than enthused about the 11 a.m. local start, and a nonconference game against the Minutemen did nothing to fuel the announced 57,374 fans.

Then came Mississippi State's lackadaisical play on the field.
