Chris Relf ready for big role in Miss St’s offense

STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) — Chris Relf has had a year to study Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen’s spread offense and he’s come to the conclusion it’s perfect for him.

Just how perfect will go a long way to determining whether the long-suffering Bulldogs will go to a bowl for the first time since 2007 and just the second time since 2000. Relf was a part-time player who struggled in Mullen’s first year as coach before a breakout game against Ole Miss in the Egg Bowl that gave him confidence going into the offseason.
