2013 football schedule finalized, changes for MSU in SEC slate

The Southeastern Conference released its official schedule for the 2013 football season, which in turn finalized the slate for Mississippi State.

The Bulldogs will play seven games at home, including four-straight contests in Davis Wade Stadium mid-season.

  • Aug.   31     vs. Oklahoma State          Houston, Texas
  • Sept.    7     ALCORN STATE           DAVIS WADE STADIUM
  • Sept.   14    at Auburn                         Auburn, Ala.
  • Sept.   21    TROY                              DAVIS WADE STADIUM
  • Oct.      5     LSU                                 DAVIS WADE STADIUM
  • Oct.     12    BOWLING GREEN        DAVIS WADE STADIUM
  • Oct.     26    KENTUCKY                  DAVIS WADE STADIUM
  • Nov.     2     at South Carolina             Columbia, S.C.
  • Nov.     9     at Texas A&M                College Station, Texas
  • Nov.   16     ALABAMA                    DAVIS WADE STADIUM
  • Nov.   23     at Arkansas                     Little Rock, Ark.
  • Nov.   30     OLE MISS                     DAVIS WADE STADIUM

Dan Mullen’s team will once again open the SEC slate with divisional foe Auburn, and LSU returns to the first half of the schedule after taking a place in the latter portion in 2012.

While the 2012 season is back-loaded with seven conference games in the final eight weeks and five-consecutive divisonal opponents to finish the campaign, the 2013 version is a touch more spread-out with the early SEC West games, as well as the match-up with Big XII opponent Oklahoma State in Houston as part of the Texas Kick Off Classic. However, the gauntlet to finish the season remains similar, with MSU taking on six-straight SEC teams.

The Bulldogs hosted Tennessee from the Eastern Divison in 2012, but South Carolina replaces the Volunteers in 2013, as State will be traveling to Columbia in early November. Kentucky remains MSU’s second opponent from the other division, as the Wildcats will be playing in Starkville for the first time in quite a while.

The final three games of the season return to their traditional order of Alabama, Arkansas and Ole Miss, as MSU will host the Egg Bowl to finish the 2013 regular season.

The SEC said this year’s SEC schedule for all teams will not be a template for the future and the 2014 schedule and rotation will be decided at a later date.

Notably, MSU has two open dates, one on September 28 and the other on October 19.

    Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog. Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? With thanks
