It’s quite possible Mississippi State’s season opening football game on Sept. 5 will conclude the following day.

Conference USA announced the Bulldogs’ opener at Southern Miss will kickoff at 9 p.m. on Fox Sports 1. It will be MSU’s inaugural appearance on the two-year old network.

Neither school had input on the kickoff time, which was decided by Conference USA and Fox Sports 1.

USM holds a 14-13-1 edge in the overall series and is tied 2-2 in games played in Hattiesburg. The Bulldogs won 49-0 in Starkville to open the 2014 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.
