Mississippi State Bulldogs Football Schedule
Mississippi State has had a football team since 1895 and generations
of locals have been raised to cheer for the Bulldogs. College football is a big deal in Starkville, Mississippi and the crowds
at Davis Wade Stadium are as loud and enthusiastic as anywhere else in the country. Coming off of a mediocre 2013 season which
ended on a few high notes hope for a turnaround season is abundant in the area. Be sure to make your way to Davis Wade Stadium
this season and be on the Bulldogs' bandwagon right from the start.
The home opener at Davis Wade Stadium is always
one of the most exciting days of the football season in Starkville and this year the festivities take place on August 30th
when the Bulldogs kick off the 2014 season against the Southern Miss Golden Eagles. No true MSU fan will want to miss the
kickoff of another exciting season of Bulldogs football so be sure to get your tickets early. Defending SEC Champions, and
national runners up, the Auburn Tigers come to Davis Wade Stadium on October 11th and you can be sure neither team will want
to lose this game. If the Bulldogs are looking to show that they have really turned things around a win against Auburn would
be a great way to do so however, Auburn will not go down easily as any stumble in conference play could cost them a shot at
returning to the championship game. Check out Mississippi State's entire home schedule right here on StubHub to see when you
can make a game.
Mississippi State Football Team
Despite finishing with a disappointing 3-5 conference
record and a middle of the road 7-6 overall record in 2013, the Bulldogs were able to salvage the season with late wins against
Arkansas and in state rivals Ole Miss which allowed them to be bowl eligible. They were invited to the Liberty Bowl where
they put a whipping on Rice University en route to a 44-7 victory. If the Bulldogs can build on the momentum of the way they
finished last season and quarterback Dak Prescott continues to develop as he did during his sophomore year, coach Dan Mullen
and company could have a special season in store. If highly regarded recruits like wide receiver Jesse Jackson, who was also
offered scholarships from SEC foes Auburn and Alabama but chose MSU, and Jamoral Graham can make contributions early in the
season that would just be icing on the cake. Things are never easy in the SEC as it is often the best football conference
in the country, but this also means that the Bulldogs will be have the opportunity to score some big upsets and move up the
national rankings as well as the SEC standings if they do so.

Mississippi State Bulldogs Football Conference
The Southeast Conference in Division I football is considered
by many college football experts and fans to be the premier conference in the nation. The SEC features programs like the Texas
A&M Aggies, Florida Gators, Georgia Bulldogs, Kentucky Wildcats, Missouri Tigers, South Carolina Gamecocks, Tennessee
Volunteers, Vanderbilt Commodores, Alabama Crimson Tide, Arkansas Razorbacks, Auburn Tigers, Louisiana State Tigers, Ole Miss
Rebels and Mississippi State Bulldogs. Last season the Auburn Tigers finished with a 13-1 record (7-1 in SEC play) and went
on to play in the BCS National Championship Game where they fell to the Florida State Seminoles in a thriller. The Bulldogs'
main rival is the Ole Miss Rebels who they play every year in the Egg Bowl. The game used to be called the Battle of the Golden
Egg and Ole Miss and Mississippi State have played each other since 1901. Another big rival is Alabama who they play in the
Battle for Highway 82, also known as the 90 Mile Drive. Unfortunately for the MSU Bulldogs this rivalry has been considerably
lopsided in Alabama's favor but Mississippi State is always looking to start changing that. Mississippi State and Alabama
first played against one another all the way back in 1896 and this represents the SEC's longest running series.
