Mississippi State has a sour history when it comes to black football uniforms.
Maybe that's because of the teams they have decided to wear them against, such as against LSU on multiple occasions. I don't know the exact record but I can tell you that MSU has lost more games in the black uni's than they've won, which has led to a majority of the fanbase hating them.
They will have to look at them at least one more time as the team dons all black against its next opponent, the Kentucky Wildcats. The school released a hype video to announce the blackout, challenging the maroon and white faithful to "paint it black" this Saturday.
