Mississippi State Football Ticket Information
The Mississippi State Bulldogs football team started playing in 1895 and was coached by W.M. Matthews. Matthews was also responsible for picking the team’s colors, maroon and white. Prior to Davis Wade Stadium at Scott Field, the Bulldogs would play at Union University. Through the years, the football team has seen many coaches who usually stayed an average of four years with few wins. It wasn’t until 1991, when Jackie Sherrill took over as head coach and launched the team into a winning season. During Sherrill’s tenure, he was 75-75-1, staking the most wins Mississippi State had ever seen. So far, Mississippi State has one SEC title from 1941 and shares a conference division title with Tennessee in 1998 and appeared in 16 post season bowl games. Don’t miss another exciting year as head football coach Dan Mullen hopes to add another winning season with his Mississippi State Bulldogs team. Let SecSeats be your Mississippi State Bulldog ticket source. Hail State!
Mississippi State 2016 Football Preview
The Bulldogs finished with a 9-4 record in 2015. In his seventh season, Coach Mullen led the Mississippi State Bulldogs to the postseason where they defeated the NC State Wolfpack 51-28 at the Belk Bowl. The highlight of the season was their exciting 51-50 defeat against Arkansas on November 21st, where they rallied with three touchdowns in the fourth quarter to take home the win. While Mississippi State held their own against most of the SEC opponents in 2015, their meeting with the Alabama Crimson Tide was less than impressive. Alabama dominated the Bulldogs with a 31-6 win on November 14th. On National Signing Day, they ranked 10th in the SEC by ESPN securing 18 commits with 3 ESPN 300. But the Bulldogs main success was surprise signing of Top 15 defensive end Jeffery Simmons. Mississippi State will face the challenge of replacing their quarterback, Dak Prescott, in the 2016 season; a challenge proving prevalent in the SEC this upcoming year. The Bulldogs will return 10 players on the defense though, which could prove beneficial in 2016.
The 2016 football schedule will include eight difficult conference games this season for Mississippi State. Prior to the fall start, the Bulldogs will hold their Maroon & White Spring football game on April 16th. Then, in early September, Mississippi State will start the season with two home games in Davis Wade Stadium against the South Alabama Jaguars and South Carolina Gamecocks. They will then travel to meet the LSU Tigers and UMass Minutemen the following weeks. At home in Davis Wade Stadium, the Bulldogs will host the Auburn Tigers, Samford Bulldogs, Texas A&M Aggies and Arkansas Razorbacks. The 2016 road schedule will be tough including trips to LaVell Edwards Stadium to play the BYU Cougars on Friday October 14th, Commonwealth Stadium to face the Kentucky Wildcats, Bryant-Denny Stadium to challenge the Alabama Crimson Tide, and their final game of the season will be against rival Ole Miss Rebels.
It will be interesting to see if the Bulldogs can rally around a new quarterback in 2016 and put themselves in contention for another bowl game.

Mississippi State Football - Davis Wade Stadium at Scott Field
Address: 90 B.S. Hood Drive, Mississippi State, MS 39762
Field: Prescription Athletic Turf (Natural Grass)
Davis Wade Stadium at Scott Field originally opened in 1914 but was renovated in 1928 with a capacity of 6000. After a $75 million upgrade that began in 2012, the stadium will seat a little over 61,000 Bulldog fans for the upcoming 2014 season with a new HD score board on the north end zone along with new concessions and restroom facilities. The two largest crowds were in 2009 and in 2011, both against top ranked Alabama in which the attendance was over 57,000. An interesting fact is that the first mascot, Bully I, is buried under the 50 yard line bench on the Mississippi State Bulldog side. Davis Wade Stadium is often referred to as the “Dawg Pound” in which rowdy fans wave their maroon and white Bulldog cow bells during the game. Also, while at a game, you may hear the fans sing along to the popular 1999 song, “Who Let the Dogs Out” by Chuck Smooth.
Mississippi State Rivals
The Egg Bowl, the battle for the Golden Egg has been going on since 1927. The distance that separates the two Mississippi schools between Ole Miss in Oxford and Mississippi State in Starkville is only about 100 miles; not much distance separating these in-state rivals. They have played a total of 112 games since 1901 with Ole Miss leading the record with 43-63-6. The longest winning streak for the Bulldogs was between 1911 and 1925 (games were not played in ’12-14 season). In 1918, “Gotcha Twice” was due to playing each other twice in back-to-back weekends where Mississippi State shut out Ole Miss on both occasions. Two years ago, the Bulldogs were 10-1 prior to the Egg Bowl Game. Mississippi State had the SEC West Champions in their near future; unfortunately, Ole Miss pulled off the victory.
Some call it the “90-mile Drive” while others call it the “Battle for Highway 82”. Either way, the two teams are said to be the longest SEC series dating back to 1896. Of the 100 games played, the Bulldogs have managed to win 18, notably one of the most unbalanced rivals. Both teams are in the Western division of the Southeastern Conference. During the 2014 season, Mississippi State was ranked #1 when they faced #5 ranked Alabama. The Crimson Tide overcame the Bulldogs in a close 25-20 victory.
