Mississippi State is back in need of an opponent for the 2016 football season.

Tulane backed out of a trip to Starkville leaving the Bulldogs in search of a non-conference foe to face. The game against the Green Wave was slated for Sept. 24 and would have completed the final game of a seven-game contract. As a result, Tulane owes MSU $350,000.

MSU’s Bob Carskadon reported the news first and stated the school has some contingency plans but there was concern to find another home opponent.

The Bulldogs are already locked into non-conference road trips to Louisiana Tech and BYU in 2016. If State is forced to play another game on the road it would result in only five home games that season.

I have covered Mississippi State in some capacity since 2004 and joined the Daily Journal staff in 2013. I enjoy short walks on the beach, performing concerts in my car and watching professional wrestling.
