The Mississippi State football season is almost upon us. We’re just a few weeks away from seeing the Mississippi State Bulldogs get the season underway against the LSU Tigers in Death Valley.
And now we officially have a kickoff time for that game.
Mississippi State’s first game of the convoluted and crazy 2020 season will begin at 2:30 p.m. in Baton Rouge as the Bulldogs will try to upset the Tigers in Death Valley for the first time since 2014. The game between Mississippi State and LSU will be broadcast on CBS.
It’s safe to say this game won’t be an easy win for the Bulldogs, but it will be an intriguing matchup.
Both Mississippi State and LSU are going through plenty of changes this offseason and the two teams are experiencing significant overhauls of their programs right now.
While the Bulldogs are breaking in an almost entirely new coaching staff and are having to install a new, drastically different offense and a rarely seen defense, LSU is having to replace nearly every significant contributor from a season ago along with Dave Aranda and Joe Brady.
That match up will be weird and entertaining and I’m looking forward to it.
It’s 2020 and things can change at a moment’s notice thanks to a global pandemic, so we shouldn’t count our chickens before they kickoff at noon Eastern Time on ESPN, but we’ve got something to look forward to nonetheless.
In what has been a weird year for sports, the SEC is certainly dealing out some very weird schedules.
The 2020 Mississippi State football schedule has been released and I would appreciate it if some things were addressed.
