Fear the Cowbell: MSU Football
Mississippi State, where ringing cowbells is all the rage, is a great place to come watch SEC football at its finest.
The Dogs call Davis Wade Stadium at Scott Field home, which is the second oldest on-campus stadium in division 1-A. The latest expansion, which raised capacity of the stadium to 55,082, began in the summer of 2000 with the construction of 50 skyboxes and 1,700 club-level seats. Announced in June 2008 were the plans to construct one of college football’s largest high definition video boards in the south end zone of the stadium. The $6.1 million true HD board, will span the roof of the Leo Seal M-Club Centre in the south end zone at Scott Field, and will became operational in October, 2008. The new board will measure 152 feet wide by 135 feet, 6 inches tall, with a main HD screen 111 feet wide by 47 feet high. It is the largest true high definition board in the Southeastern Conference. The 2007 17-12 victory over Alabama drew the largest-ever crowd of 56,118. For more info about gameday and tailgating, visit http://www.gameday.msstate.edu/
