One of the greatest things that came of the SEC's TV deal with ESPN was that virtually all SEC school's football games are on television now each fall. In our history, Mississippi State has won a total of 70* football games on television. That number breaks down to the following records per channel:

ABC 4-9
CBS 3-6
CBS College 1-0
CSS 1-1
CSTV 1-0
NBC 2-0
ESPN 11-20
ESPN2 6-16
ESPN U 8-2
ESPN-Regional 1-3
FOX 4-2
Fox Sports Net 4-1
JP / Lincoln Financial Sports/Raycom 21-26
Mizlou 1-0
Sunshine 1-0
#'s according to the MSU Football Media Guide, page 95

ESPNU (and Herm Edwards) have been good to State, obviously. Which team has State played to most on television? Alabama, with 22 televised matchups all-time. State was 7-15 in those matchups (wooo 33%!).

*70 television wins does not include wins in the 2011 season. With those wins included, MSU now has 77 wins on television. We're sorry for misleading you. We will now punish ourselves by cutting on the 2008 Egg Bowl and OH MY GOSH THE HORROR
