The MSU commitment scoreboard update is a free weekly feature that allows readers the chance to keep up with how the next crop of Bulldogs are doing in their final seasons before joining the team in Starkville next fall.

Brandon Holloway and Alonso mounted a fourth quarter comeback that saw Brandon reel in a 32 yard touchdown pass that proved to be the game winner in a 13-12 decision over Spoto.

A late field goal attempt by Spoto was blocked to seal the victory.

Will Redmond also had a hand in some last minute heroics. Will snagged a 35 yard touchdown grab to give Memphis East (2-0) a 26-22 win over Briarcrest.

The decisive scoring play was the second for Redmond who also had a nifty 75 yard catch and run.

Cedric Jiles found the endzone on a 15 yard fumble return for a touchdown that opened the scoring in a wild 39-32 Clinton (1-1) win over the Ridgeland Titans.

Cole Carter and Caledonia have already doubled last season's win total as they advance to 2-0 after getting by West Lowndes 29-15.

Xavier Grindle returned a late 1st half kickoff 81 yards for a touchdown and converted a two point conversion late in the 4th quarter to force overtime in the annual grudge match between East and West Marion.

East Marion (2-0) was able to punch through in the extra period and hold on for a 20-14 victory.

Xavier also had two punt returns for touchdowns called back during the game.

Nick James and the Long Beach defense slowed down Hancock just enough to get some separation and roll out to a 34-18 win.

Nelson Adams and Brandon lost in overtime to Pearl 27-20. The Bulldogs built a nice second half lead only to see Pearl storm back to tie it on the last play of regulation.

Brandon falls to 1-1 on the season.

Deonte Evans and McComb tasted disappointment for the first time this season on Friday night when South Pike was able to hold the Tiger offense to just six points.

The 20-6 set back drops McComb to 1-1.

Gus Walley and Greene County had some trouble getting the ball into the endzone this week and fell to Quitman 28-13.

Devon Bell connected on a second half 38 yard field goal, but in the end some missed opportunities from the first half came back to bite Warren Central (0-2) as they fell to Callaway in double overtime 36-35.

Devon Desper and Madison Central will look to get on track next week after two straight tough losses. Last week Olive Branch made a late scoring drive, but this Friday night it was the Starkville defense turning in a four and out to preserve a 16-14 victory.

Fred Brown scored in a 4th quarter 8 yard touchdown grab that had him slip the ball just inside the pylon as he was falling out of bounds.

In the end a dreadful 1st quarter doomed the Tigers as they come up short to Provine 23-18. Jim Hill is now 0-2 on the season.

On Thursday night, Adairius Barnes scored on a 33 yard run and a 15 yard touchdown pass to lead Port Gibson (2-0) to its' second straight blowout win.

Watch Video from the 49-6 win over Coahoma County here.

Ryan Brown and Arch Bishop Shaw closed out their pre-season preparations with two jamboree wins. Shaw knocked off John Ehret 14-7 and Helen Cox 14-6.

Like Ryan, Quadry Antoine and Torrey Bell will play their season openers next Friday night.
