Mississippi State is in complete control of Southern Miss heading into halftime up 21-0 against the Eagles but the first half lead may have come with a price as the Bulldog offense was hit with some significant blows.

In the second quarter, both quarterback Tommy Stevens and running back Kylin Hill left the game due to injuries and have not yet returned. Both players were having solid games, too. Stevens was nine of 10 passing for 105 yards and two touchdowns while Hill had 57 rushing yards on six carries.

Stevens was taken back to the locker room before halftime and did not return. He walked to the locker room on his own, without assistance and is questionable to return to the field, according to Mississippi State.

Hill, on the hand, had to be helped off the field after getting rolled up on after a run. His status is unclear for the second half. Entering the game, Hill was the SEC’s leading rusher after racking up 197 yards in the opener against Louisiana.

UPDATE: Stevens has been ruled out for the second half; Hill was questionable to return but has returned to the field in the third quarter.
