Today, the Bulldogs found out their kickoff time and broadcast info for their game against the Texas A&M Aggies.

If for some reason that tweet isn’t showing up on your browser, then I’ll tell you the info you need to know. Mississippi State’s game against Texas A&M on October 28th will kickoff at 6:15 p.m. central daylight time and be broadcast on ESPN.
Mississippi State will enter the showdown with Texas A&M with a 5-2 record or a 4-3 record depending on what they do this week against the Kentucky Wildcats for Homecoming.
The Aggies will definitely come into the game with a 5-2 record. Texas A&M has their bye this coming weekend after squeaking out a win on the road against the Florida Gators.
I was a bit surprised when I saw this game was the primetime ESPN game. Texas A&M is barely ranked by the Coaches and neither will be ranked any higher than 24th or 25th at the conclusion of this weekend’s games. But when I saw the schedule for the 28th, it made a lot of sense.
The only marquee match up taking place is between Florida and Georgia. And the only reason it is a marquee match up is because of the history of that rivalry. Other than that, there are a whole lot bad games taking place. So yeah, this game should be one of the better ones for the weekend.
