NC State adds football series with Mississippi State

Posted July 1

Inside Carter Finley Stadium NC State

NC State has scheduled a home-and-home series with SEC program Mississippi State, the department announced Tuesday.

On Sept. 12, 2020, the Bulldogs will travel to Carter-Finley Stadium and the Wolfpack will travel to Starkville for a Sept. 11, 2021 matchup.

NC State has faced Mississippi State five times in program history, boasting a 3-2 advantage in the series. The last meeting was in the 1995 Peach Bowl, when the Wolfpack held MSU to just one touchdown and five field goals in a 28-24 New Year’s Day clash.

The squads also met in the 1963 Liberty Bowl, a contest the ACC Co-Champion Wolfpack lost 16-12.

Mississippi State has played in Raleigh twice, but never in Carter-Finley Stadium, winning 26-10 in 1940 and falling 14-0 in 1930. The Pack’s only trip to Starkville was a 6-0 win in 1931.

    Wow, that's a nice step up from Georgia Southern, Old Dominion (I know we played them last season) and Presbyterian.

    Exactly my first thought when seeing the headline. Wonder if these games will even be played. Seems like the trend is to sign these and then break them a year or two later... Happening all over the landscape lately.

    One of the worst teams int eh SEC. But the Pack can say they are playing an SEC team. "Whose state"?

    Maybe an upgrade to the non-conference schedule?
