STARKVILLE, Miss. – While kickoff for the 2013 campaign is a little more than a week away, Mississippi State fans can experience an early start to the season with the annual Fan Day festivities slated for Saturday, Aug. 24. The much-anticipated event will be held from 1-3 p.m. at the Palmeiro Center and will once again be open to the public, family-friendly and free for all who attend. Doors will open at noon.
Bulldog football fans are invited to receive autographs from head coach Dan Mullen and the 2013 team. To help ensure everyone in attendance has a chance to meet all the players and Coach Mullen, fans are asked to limit their autograph requests to one item per person, and players will only sign the 2013 football posters that the athletic department will provide.
Posters and schedule cards for football, soccer, and volleyball will be available to fans. Other attractions include photo opportunities with Bully and Champ in addition to a free kids’ zone with an inflatable bounce house, giant slide, and face-painting.
Special guests include the 2013 Bulldog Volleyball team as well as MSU Spirit Squads. Barnes & Noble at Mississippi State will be on-site for fans to purchase the latest gear and merchandise. Free refreshments will also be served.
Fans are asked to enter through the southeast doors of the Palmeiro Center.
Bulldog Football opens the 2013 season at Reliant Stadium in Houston, TX on Saturday, Aug. 31 at 2:30 p.m. In the Advocare Texas Kickoff Classic, the Bulldogs will face the 14th ranked Oklahoma State Cowboys in a game that will be nationally televised on ABC/ESPN2.
