Ben Howland and Quinndary Weatherspoon will look to guide and lead a very young team through an non-conference slate that, while overall a pretty easy slate, it does have a few difficult quirks to it. Notable portions of the out of conference slate includes Oregon State and a resumption of the rivalry with Southern Miss. Mississippi State will also participate in the Charleston Classic that also has defending national champ Villanova in it.

The Bulldogs will also get a chance to avenge one of their most embarrassing losses from last season when they play University of Missouri Kansas City, which the Bulldogs dropped the 67-72 contest last year on the road.
