STARKVILLE, Miss. - Super Bulldog Weekend began 24 years ago as an opportunity for Mississippi State University alumni and fans to return to campus in the spring and enjoy a weekend of athletic events and activities. From its inception, Super Bulldog Weekend has proven to be an event full of fun for the entire family.


As the spring homecoming weekend nears the middle of its third decade on the MSU campus, the 2009 version will offer the same kind of enjoyment for the Bulldog fan. The 24th annual Super Bulldog Weekend - being presented by Regions Bank - begins Friday, April 17, and runs through Sunday, April 19.


As always, Bulldog football and baseball will highlight the weekend.


New MSU head football coach Dan Mullen will unveil his first Bulldog team at the spring game, set for 5:30 p.m. Saturday, the 18th.


Head coach John Cohen’s initial season as mentor of the Diamond Dogs will be well under way by Super Bulldog Weekend and State will host Cohen’s former team, the Kentucky Wildcats, in a three-game series at Dudy Noble Field, Polk-DeMent Stadium. The Dogs and Cats will scratch and claw Friday at 6:30 p.m., Saturday at 1 p.m., and Sunday at 1:30 p.m.


While football and baseball have long been staples of SBW activities, another old favorite will return as well. The annual Pig Cooking Contest will once again take place on the MSU campus, with judging set for Saturday morning.


The MSU Fan Fair, featuring interactive games and exhibits, face painting, free photos with Bully, and autograph opportunities, runs from 10 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. Saturday. Fan Fair activities will be held in the Junction area next to Davis Wade Stadium.


Other athletic activities during SBW include a three-game softball series. Coach Jay Miller’s Bulldogs will host South Carolina, beginning with an 11 a.m. double-header on Saturday and concluding with a single game on Sunday, a 1 p.m. start.


A big State tennis match will be contested Saturday as well, when Coach Per Nilsson’s Bulldog netmen host arch-rival Ole Miss at the A.J. Pitts Tennis Centre, a contest slated for a Noon start.


Finally, the MSU soccer program will hold its alumni game Saturday morning at 10 a.m. at the MSU Soccer Field.


More specific details on the events surrounding Super Bulldog Weekend presented by Regions Bank will be released throughout February, March and April. Please consult MSU’s official web site,, for further updates.
