Mississippi State fans have been waiting all season for Michael Carr to make his first impact for the Bulldogs.

The talented former four-star prospect arrived on campus just before the start of fall camp putting him behind the learning curve of the other incoming freshmen. Carr's star finally began to shine this past weekend getting his first touches and also causing the game-winning fumble for MSU.

The 6-foot-1, 195-pounder got the first touch on offense during the second half against UAB taking a reverse 20-yards on his first carrier opportunity.
