STARKVILLE, Miss. — The Mississippi State football program will be bringing back the Flying M logo for its homecoming game on Nov. 7 against the Vanderbilt Commodores.
The throwback uniforms pay homage to Mississippi State teams of the late 1960s and early ‘70s.
The Flying M logo was worn over a six-year period to signify Mississippi State’s close ties to the United States space program and America’s drive to land the first man on the moon. Aerospace and aeronautics research is a major pride point for Mississippi State University. MSU is part of the FAA Center of Excellence for Unmanned Aerial Systems, continuing the tradition of national excellence in flight.
The helmet features a white shell with a grey facemask and the Flying M logo in maroon on both sides with a maroon stripe down the center. The back of the helmet displays larger 2-inch player numbers.
The Bulldogs will wear maroon jerseys that feature white double stripes on the sleeves and white pants that feature complementary maroon double stripes.
The Nov. 7 homecoming game against the Commodores will kickoff at 3 p.m. CT and will be airing on SEC Network.
