MSU-Auburn Set for Morning Kickoff

The SEC has released some kickoff times today, and that includes Mississippi State’s game at Auburn on Sept. 10. It will start at 11:21 a.m. and be televised by SEC Network.

MSU had only one daytime kickoff during the 2010 regular season (against Alcorn State), and this one was by design. The Bulldogs have a Thursday night home game the following week (Sept. 15) against LSU, and MSU athletics director Scott Stricklin said on Twitter that he when he was approached by ESPN and the SEC about the Thursday game, he requested an early kickoff for the Auburn game.

The LSU game time has already been set: 7 p.m., with ESPN carrying it. No other game times have been set.
