The Mississippi State Bulldogs had very little trouble on Saturday as they were never challenged in a 45-6 Southeastern Conference win over Vanderbilt. It was a nice win after the team came off a 49-9 loss to No. 4 Alabama.
QB Will Rogers was a star on this day as he tossed a career-best four touchdowns to go along with 386 yards through the air. It was the fifth time he has thrown for three or more touchdown passes in a game this season.
After the game, head coach Mike Leach used his interview time to speak about….Halloween candy….for the entire time.
He shared with Alyssa Lang of the SEC Network that gummie bears are his favorite.
“Got to be the Haribo ones,” Leach said. “And then the other thing I love is when they used to have the Sprees in a box, outstanding. You have to go to the dollar store to find it, but I do. And then the latest, there’s still candy innovation. Although a while back, I found that Europe had better candy than we did overall. Because they have gummie everything. You know they have those Nerds clusters, which is new, which is good, the Nerds clusters is good. Then if you go chocolate, probably Almond Joy.”
That is a man who is very pasionate about Halloween candy.
Mississippi State will host Kentucky in an SEC game Oct. 30.
