Dedicated on November 1, 2008, the Templeton Athletic Academic Center is a welcome addition to the Bulldog athletic program. The $10 million facility is named for former MSU Director of Athletics Larry Templeton.

The facility is an addition to two existing facilities in the athletic wing of the MSU campus - the Shira Complex and the Holliman Athletic Center. It is situated on the south side of those two facilities, and across the street from the Bryan Athletic Administration Building.

The 34,000 square-foot building serves the entire athletic department, houses the Athletic Academics offices and staff, and includes individual computer rooms, tutor work areas, a large open study area and a 300-seat dining facility with a fully-functioning kitchen.

Templeton, now Athletic Director Emeritus, served 22 years as Director of Athletics and during his tenure helped position MSU Athletics as an innovative, progressive program, with equality in sports for women, new and renovated facilities and keen fiscal management.


During the 1990s almost every sport came away with a best-ever finish. Achievements included six football bowl games, men’s basketball’s trip to the 1996 NCAA Final Four, three baseball trips to the NCAA College World Series, five Southeastern Conference championships and participation in the NCAA Championships by sport teams 29 times.
