Under the protocols, legislative staff and reporters were required to undergo screening Monday, consisting of a temperature check and questions about travel, contacts and symptoms. The protocols say legislators may refuse screening. The resumption of the session was prodded by a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of plans for distributing federal coronavirus relief aid. Screenings were done by Capital City Fire/Rescue, and badges were issued to be worn in the Capitol noting that a person had been screened.

Earlier in the week, the Mississippi State quarterback admitted to pressing during the games.It continued Saturday against Arkansas — for a half.The quarterback returned to the form that helped him become a Heisman Trophy candidate in the second half of MSU’s 17-10 win.Turning point: Redmond saves the day for Mississippi StateMeanwhile, the Bulldogs’ defense took advantage of Arkansas’ misfires. Will Redmond secured the win with seconds remaining with an interception.Prescott led MSU to its 11th-straight win with a rollout in the fourth quarter. Facing third-and-4 from his own 31, Prescott rolled to his right. He squared his shoulders on the run and found a wide-open Fred Ross for a 69-yard touchdown. It gave MSU its first lead with 13:21 left in the fourth quarter.“That was a huge win for our team tonight against an excellent Arkansas football team,” MSU coach Dan Mullen said. “Fortunately we were able to make one more play at the end of the game.The junior finished with a career-high and his first 300-yard passing game. He finished with 331 yards with a touchdown.Prescott threw for better than 60 percent for the first time in three weeks. He started the game 10 of 16 in the first half.Arkansas held Mississippi State to seven points at halftime. It was the fewest MSU scored through the first two quarters since last year’s Egg Bowl. It was the first time MSU didn’t score at least 10 in the first half when Prescott started a game. The Bulldogs had scored at least 17 in the first half in each of their first seven games.Special teams nearly cost the Bulldogs big against ArkansasThe Razorbacks consistently pressured the junior, which resulted in hands in his face as well as being hit as he threw.The constant pressure led to two more interceptions in the first half. Prescott has five interceptions in the last three games. He threw two in MSU’s first five games.“He was a little bit more relaxed in the second half,” Mullen said. “I don’t know if he’s made bad interceptions this year. Those two interceptions tonight weren’t good.”Prescott didn’t play his best against Kentucky or Auburn, but his supporting cast picked up the slack. That wasn’t the case Saturday until the fourth quarter.Jamoral Graham mishandled a punt for the fourth straight game. Fred Ross replaced the true freshman. The miscue led to seven points for Arkansas.The Bulldogs were also flagged at inopportune times. Malcolm Johnson picked up an unsportsmanlike penalty as Mississippi State took the ball to the Arkansas 31. The drive ended in a punt in the first quarter.Gus Walley was flagged for illegal touching in the third. It killed another drove in Arkansas territory. Dillon Day was penalized twice on MSU’s scoring drive that tied the game at 10-10 in the third. His second negated a 14-yard reception. Mississippi State didn’t get the yards back and settled for a 37 yards field goal.The Bulldogs entered the game with the 10th fewest penalties in the country. Mississippi State ended with eight penalties for 45 yards“That’s just sloppy play. Here’s my issue with those. Those are mental penalties,” Mullen said. “Those are certainly avoidable penalties.”The defense followed Prescott’s suit in the fourth quarter. Arkansas averaged better than five yard per carry as it stood on the Mississippi State two yard line on third down last in the fourth. The Razorbacks lost yards on third and fourth down.The defense needed on more stand.Redmond’s interception secured the win and one more week at No. 1“Our guys are finding ways to win,” Mullen said. “We won high scoring games now we won a low scoring game. I told people we were going to have to do that.”Contact Michael Bonner at (601) 961-7289 or mbonner @jackson.gannett.com.
