All the Cities in Mississippi the Dawgs Have Played in (and other interesting nuggets)

If you're 25 years old or less, you probably don't remember Mississippi State playing home football games anywhere other than Starkville. But, that hasn't always been the case. In fact, before Jackie Sherrill came to MSU Starkville was just a place to play lesser competition as the big games were saved for Jackson. Through the years State has played in many cities across the Magnolia state....and here is that list for you..

Starkville - many, many times

Jackson - many times

Columbus - 12

Meridian - 4

Tupelo - 4

Greenwood - 2

Aberdeen - 2

Clarksdale - 1

Gulfport - 1
