Kicking off the 2014 football season provides excitement enough for Mississippi State fans, but that's not the only thing they are excited about.
The Bulldogs start the season Saturday against Southern Mississippi in the newly-renovated Davis Wade Stadium for the 100th year of Scott Field. The $75 million renovation started two years ago and is in the process of being finished, just days before the season. The renovation was exclusively in the north end zone and adds 6,255 seats making the capacity 61,337.
Many Bulldog fans will get their first view of the renovation when they walk into Davis Wade Stadium to take in the football game.
"I think it matched the vision that our design team had when we started the project," Mississippi State Athletic Director Scott Stricklin said after the media toured the new renovations on Tuesday. "In so many ways, we made the experience better. It was fun to see how it all goes together and see how it all ties together."
