Mississippi State continues to show compliance with the new Southeastern Conference policy of playing series against power conference teams in the near future.
The MSU athletic department announced a home-and-home series with North Carolina State on Tuesday for the 2020 and 2021 seasons. 
When MSU athletic director Scott Stricklin and his administration set out to find teams from power conferences to play, they put them in columns. North Carolina State was in the middle column, which were the teams that are on an equal playing field with MSU. 
"NC State was just one of those (in the middle column)," Stricklin said. "They're a quality program and they've had a lot of success. They've probably had some inconsistencies similar to us from time to time.
"It made sense (with) two land grant schools. We didn't set out to call the land grants, but it makes some sense from that standpoint. (There are) a lot of similar connections between the two schools."
The two teams will meet Sept. 12, 2020 at Carter-Finley Stadium in Raleigh. The Wolfpack will return the trip to Davis Wade Stadium on Sept. 11, 2021.
