Today, Mississippi State University and adidas — why don’t they capitalize their name? — unveiled two sets of special football uniforms to be worn later this year.
On November 3rd, State will don all white uniforms at home against Texas A&M to commemorate the two schools’ 2000 “Snow Bowl” Independence Bowl battle. For those who like the helmet Boise State sometimes wears featuring a giant Bronco logo on one side, you’re in luck ’cause the Dogs are doubling the fun. The white helmet — shown at left — will feature a big silver Bulldog head on each side of the lid and MSU’s standard maroon M-State logo will be centered on the back as well.
Then, the Dogs will go from silver to gold on November 24th when they visit Oxford for this year’s Egg Bowl game. As was the case last season, State’s unis will feature gold numerals as they battle for the Golden Egg trophy.
So why has Mississippi State recently jumped on the multiple-uniforms bandwagon? Dan Mullen knows:
“They’re 18-, 19-year-old kids, you know. They look at what’s cool and they want to play in cool uniforms. And I think, you know, recruiting… I think recruits will think it’s really cool. That’s what kids want to do, they want to come play for a cool team.”
