For those headed to Starkville or already in Starkville, there will be quite a few things going on before the game.  Here's a little guide to help you navigate all that is going on today.

For those needing to get tickets at Davis Wade Stadium, the ticket office will open at 3:30.  Going on at the same time, the C Spire Fan Zone will open, and there will be a ribbon cutting for the north end zone.

Forty-five minutes later, the gates open, allowing fans to enter the stadium and see the new expansion for themselves if they have not yet seen it.  At 4:30, the C Spire Tailgate Show beings on MSU Radio Network, and the Dawg Walk takes place.

At 5:00, the teams will take the field, and at 5:39, the field clock will be set to 60:00 as we will be one hour away from kickoff.  When the clock shows 21:00 at 6:18, the teams will leave the field, and three minutes later, honorary captain Dan Bland will be recognized. At 6:26, the National Anthem will take place with a flyover to follow.

With just five minutes to kick off at 6:34, fans will get to watch the Mississippi State Intro Video, and at 6:36:30, the Bulldogs will take the field. One minute later, get ready to boo as Southern Miss takes the field.

The coin toss will take place at 6:36 with kickoff following at 6:39
