The Oklahoma State Cowboys and the Mississippi State Bulldogs are in discussions to play at Reliant Stadium in Houston in 2013, NewsOK has reported.
The game would be played on August 31, which would be the season-opener for both schools.
If the match-up is finalized, it would be the fifth meeting between the two schools and second game to be played off campus. The first meeting occurred in Jackson, MS in 1970, with the remaining games played in Stillwater (1971 and 1998) and Starkville (1999). The series is tied at two games each.
Oklahoma State is currently slated to travel to UTSA on Sept. 7 and host Lamar on Sept. 14. The game against the Bulldogs would finalize their 2013 non-conference schedule.
Mississippi State’s 2013 non-SEC schedule would also be completed with the addition of the Oklahoma State game. The Bulldogs are scheduled to visit UAB on Sept. 7 and host Troy on Sept. 21 and Bowling Green on Oct. 12.
Update (10/11/12): The game has now been officially announced.
Sounds like fun. I’m in!
About time Mississippi State got a challenging OOC game.
Will be fun to watch
I think that they should let college football teams that have NFL potential play in a NFL stadium.
Have to wait and see if they’re allowed to play on TV. MSU just fired a position coach with only two weeks until the season opener. This was in connection with an NCAA investigation allegedly concerning a dude named Redmond. They replaced the coach with the former head coach at Minnesota stating that he “was one of the best unemployed coaches out there.”
There hasn’t been a team banned from television in 15 years or more. If Penn State didn’t get a TV ban, then nobody is going to, ever.
mullen probably wants the AD fired…not a cupcake that he likes.
