Mississippi State has been fighting an uphill battle with the Southeastern Conference when it has come to cowbells in the last few years.
The league amended the Artificial Noisemaker Policy even more this past week at the SEC meetings in Destin, Fla. and the outcome favors MSU. Fans will have more leeway with the updated policy.
The new rule will allow "the use of institutionally controlled, computerized sound systems (including music), institutionally controlled artificial noisemakers, and traditional institutional noisemakers at any time, except from the time the offensive center is over the football until the play is whistled dead."Â
"This proposal will enhance the fan experience and provide institutions with the flexibility to appeal to their fans by the use of musical and institutionally-controlled noise," SEC Commissioner Mike Slive said in a statement. Â
