Mississippi State, Southern Miss series could be announced tomorrow

Rumors started flying earlier this week that a deal had been brokered to have the Mississippi State Bulldogs and the University of Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles square off on the gridiron for the first time in more than 20 years.

It looks like an announcement will be made at a press conference tomorrow announcing a two game series, although it is unclear when that series would start.

This would be the first time the two teams have met since 1990, when the Bulldogs and Eagles met in Starkville and MSU came away victorious, winning 13-10. The teams first met in 1935, in Hatteisburg, a game which Mississippi State won 27-0. In between, the schools have faced off irregularly, with Mississippi State leading the series over all 14-12-1.

Here is the series record:

1947, MSU 14-7; 1964, MSU 48-7; 1965, MSU 27-9; 1966, MSU 10-9; 1967, USM 21-14; 1968, USM 47-14; 1969, MSU 34-20; 1970, MSU 51-15; 1972, MSU 26-7; 1973, 10-10; 1975, MSU 7-3; 1976. MSU 14-6; 1977, USM 14-7; 1978, USM 22-17; 1979, USM 21-7; 1980, USM 42-14; 1981, USM 7-6; 1982, USM 20-14; 1983, USM 31-6, 1984; MSU 27-18, 1985; MSU 23-20; 1986, USM 28-24; 1987, USM 18-14; 1988, USM 38-21; 1989, MSU 26-23; 1990, MSU 13-10.

When the two teams have played in Starkville, Mississippi State leads 8-6-1. In Hatteisburg, the series is tied at 2-2. They have also played eight times on neutral ground, and USM leads that series 6-2.
