Mississippi State is starting to adhere to the new Southeastern Conference rule of scheduling opponents from power conferences.
The MSU administration showed that on Thursday.
It was announced that the Bulldogs will play a home-and-home series with Arizona for the 2022 and 2023 seasons.
The first meeting will take place on Sept. 10, 2022 at Arizona Stadium in Tucson, Ariz. The two teams play on Sept. 9, 2023 at Davis Wade Stadium.
"We're very excited to announce this series with a Pac-12 program the caliber of Arizona," MSU athletic director Scott Stricklin said in a school release. "It will bolster our non-conference schedule. We haven't played in that part of the country since 2002, so it gives our fans a chance to see another part of the country while supporting the Bulldogs."Â
