The Mississippi State Bulldogs and the Texas Tech Red Raiders have scheduled a home-and-home football series for 2028 and 2029, FBSchedules.com has learned.
A copy of the game contract was obtained from Mississippi State University via a state public records request.
In the first game of the series, Mississippi State will host Texas Tech at Davis Wade Stadium in Starkville on Sept. 9, 2028. The Bulldogs will then travel to face the Red Raiders at Jones AT&T Stadium in Lubbock on Sept. 8, 2029.
Mississippi State and Texas Tech first met on the gridiron in 1953 and haven’t played since a 20-16 Bulldog win in 1970. Mississippi State leads the overall series 4-1-2.
Texas Tech is the fifth Power Five opponent that Mississippi State has added to their future schedules. The Bulldogs are also slated to face Kansas State (2018-19), NC State (2020-21), Arizona (2022-23), and Minnesota (2026-27).
Mississippi State still needs to add a Power opponent for the 2024 and 2025 seasons.
Texas Tech also has four other Power opponents on their future schedules. The Red Raiders are set to play Ole Miss (2018), Arizona (2019-20), NC State (2022, 2027), and Oregon (2023-24).
Tech has an opening for a non-conference Power opponent in 2021, 2025, and 2026.
Congrats to two AD’s that get it. May this not be the only Power 5 OOC game each schedules for those years.
