Mississippi State continues to strengthen its non-conference men’s basketball schedule.

The Bulldogs announced a two-game deal with Tulane to go along with previous outings against Florida State and Oregon State. MSU will travel to New Orleans on Dec. 6, and the Green Wave will come to Starkville in 2015-16.

The Bulldogs have a 54-38 advantage in the series, with Tulane holding a slight 26-24 edge in New Orleans. State has won six straight in the series including a 72-50 victory in the last meeting in New Orleans as part of the 2003 Nokia Sugar Bowl Classic.

The Green Wave is coming off a 17-17 campaign and an appearance in the College Basketball Invitational.
