Yesterday we found out Mississippi State's 2013 football schedule, and already we're hearing rumors as to potential slight tweaks to games for next season.
Earlier this week, Mississippi State's football color analyst and former QB Matt Wyatt tweeted the following:
Sources tell me next season's UK at MState contest the 4th week of Oct will likely be a Thursday night ESPN game.— Matt Wyatt (@MaroonWyatt) October 19, 2012
This would give MSU a Thursday night home game for the 5th time since the 2005 season. State did not have such a game this season.
More importantly, a Thursday night game against Kentucky (would be on October 24) would give the Bulldogs 12 days to prepare for the Wildcats after Bowling Green on October 12, and 9 days to prepare for a tough road trip to Columbia to face the South Carolina Gamecocks.
