Mississippi State will open the 2013 season at Reliant Stadium in Houston on August 31 against Oklahoma State in the Texas Kickoff Classic.
On Tuesday, the kickoff time was announced. The Bulldogs and Cowboys will start at 2:30 p.m. The game will either be on ABC or ESPN2.
“When we first began talking about the opportunity to participate in the Texas Kickoff Classic, we knew there would be a large national appeal to this game,” MSU head coach Dan Mullen said in a school release. “The fact that it’ll be available on ABC and will be a nationally televised game just reaffirms our thoughts.”
Tickets for the Texas Kickoff Classic are available through the Mississippi State ticket office and the official Mississippi State team hotel in Houston will be the Hyatt Regency. Tickets can be purchased either by calling 888-GO-DAWGS or online at www.hailstate.com/tickets (http://tkt.xosn.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_LANG=C&DB_OEM_ID=16800&ATCLID=205705144)
