On the Links: Run Struggles; Swedenburg Feature (w/Video)

Gator Bowl: MSU (8-4) vs. No. 21 Northwestern (9-3), EverBank Field, Tuesday, 11 a.m., ESPN2 (Bob WischusenDanny Kanell and Allison Williams)


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. | Good morning, people. Hope you’re well, and I hope you have a few minutes to spare to get caught up on my coverage of MSU from down here.

I’ve got a couple of stories in today’s Journal. One is about MSU’s struggling running game, which will need to return to form against Northwestern. Could be tough, because the Wildcats allow just 122.8 rushing yards per game.

My other story is a feature that’s been holding, and we finally found room for it today. It’s on punter Baker Swedenburg, who has quietly put together another strong season. We caught up with Swedenburg back before Christmas, and you can check out the video below.

Nothing happening today, so I’m gonna take it easy and watch some NFL.

I am the online content coordinator for DJournal.com. I also co-host The Memo and Prep Rally podcasts and host the Newsbreak program. Previously at the Journal, I covered Mississippi State athletics (2008-13), high schools (2004-08), and was on the copy desk (2002-04).
