Mississippi State Bulldogs Plane Forced to Make Emergency Landing After Engine Failure

The Mississippi State Bulldogs, fresh off of a 77-74 victory over Missouri in Columbia, had a huge scare last night when their airplane had to make an emergency landing in St. Louis after the plane’s right engine lost power.

After the initial scare, the pilots were able to land the plane in St. Louis without any complications. The team spent the night in Festus, Missouri outside of St. Louis before making the 6.5 hour trek back to Starkville this morning. The Mississippi State basketball team’s Twitter account explained that players were “rattled” but ok.

Head coach Rick Ray voiced his concerns (perhaps half-jokingly) on Twitter as well:

The Mississippi State Bulldogs are currently in 10th place in the SEC with a record of 12-13 (5-7 SEC). Their next game is a rivalry showdown with Ole Miss in Starkville on Thursday night.
