STARKVILLE, Miss. – The Mississippi State athletic department and adidas today unveiled the Bulldogs’ new home and away football uniforms at the Barnes and Noble Campus Bookstore. Available in retail outlets in mid-July, the maroon and white jerseys feature gray accents and incorporate the university’s new marks and logos.

The uniform will feature the new university athletic wordmark in the center of the chest, marking the first time in the modern era the full “Mississippi State” name has ever been displayed on the jersey. The Bulldogs will wear the uniforms for the 2009 season, the first season under new head coach Dan Mullen.

“With our new partnership with adidas, and working with Coach Mullen, we were able to not only update the look of our football team, but also proudly display the full name of our university and include our new logos and marks,” director of athletics Greg Byrne said.

The new uniforms are a change from head to toe for the Bulldogs, as it also includes a maroon helmet, a return to the headgear color the Bulldogs wore from 1963-65 and from 1974-2003. Mullen’s team will also wear black socks and black adidas shoes.

The new modernized fit jersey features ClimaCool, a unique system of fabric placed in high heat zones –such as the shoulders – that enhances ventilation allowing a continuous supply of fresh air to the body. Both the new-look jersey and pants also incorporate For-motion cuts, strategically placed seams that remove excess fabric to enhance the natural movements during a game while reducing obstruction and abrasion.

“This is a new and exciting uniform for our guys to wear,” Mullen said. “We wanted to create a look that was both visually appealing to our current and future players and included the colors and traditions of those Mississippi State teams that came before us.”

Mullen and his new-look Bulldogs – although they will not debut the new uniforms – take to Scott Field on Saturday for the Maroon-White Game. The game kicks off at 5:30 p.m. as the centerpiece of Super Bulldog Weekend presented by Regions Bank. A weekend full of activities on the Mississippi State campus and in Starkville is planned, and more information and a schedule of events are available at MStateAthletics.com.
