Mississippi State will spend next Christmas in sunny Hawaii.
ESPN announced Tuesday night that the Bulldogs have been invited to play in the 2010 Diamond Head Classic, to be held next Dec. 22, 23 and 25 in Honolulu.
The field also includes Baylor, Butler, Florida State, Hawaii, San Diego, Utah, and one other team that’s yet to be confirmed.
It will be the second trip to Hawaii for MSU head coach Rick Stansbury. In his first season at the helm, 1998-99, he took the Bulldogs there for the Outrigger Hotels Rainbow Classic, where they lost two of three.
