    I enrolled at the University of Florida in 1987. Since that time, I can recall the Gators losing three times to either Ole Miss or Mississippi State.

    There have obviously been more than just three Gator losses to those two schools over that time but three in particular stood out more than any others.

    The earliest loss I can recall came in 1992. It was a rare Thursday night game for the Southeastern Conference. Steve Spurrier had already gotten his feet wet as coach of the Gators and his team was heavily favored headed into Starkville. After all, the last five times Florida had played Mississippi State, they had beaten the Bulldogs by a combined score of 139-31.

    Not that night.
