Get your season ticket early. The Delta Devils are weaponized on both, offense and defense this season. A well balanced group that will be exciting to watch and have fun playing 60 minutes of football. So for all the alumni, friends, fans and supporters of the Valley, It’s Time!

Get your tickets early. The 2022 Fall season is going to be exciting for the Gridiron Soldiers of Mississippi Valley State University. Now that they have a balanced attack of an offense and defense, both sides of the ball are going to full of memories. The heat and temperature of the Delta is going to get hotter.
