Blackout halts MHSAA 6A State Championship

STARKVILLE (WLBT) - Oak Grove and South Panola have played lights out football this season. On Friday the term "lights out" turned from figurative to literal.

South Panola led 7-0 in the 1st quarter of the 6A State Championship when a blackout occurred. A transformer exploded on the south part of the Mississippi State University campus. The power went out at Davis Wade Stadium as well as portions of Starkville.

The Warriors and Tigers are waiting it out. We will keep you posted.

Mike Sands is in Starkville. Follow him at for updates.
