Mississippi State has scheduled a future “home-and-Dome” series with UL-Lafayette.
The Bulldogs will host the Ragin’ Cajuns on Nov. 3, 2018, at Davis Wade Stadium before traveling to the New Orleans’ Mercedes-Benz Superdome to kickoff the 2019 season against UL-Lafayette, the school announced on Thursday.
“This series makes sense because MSU gets a home game, followed by a neutral-site contest in a destination city our fans can get to easily,” Mississippi State athletic director Scott Stricklin said. “The opportunity to open the 2019 season in the Superdome on Labor Day weekend is a huge plus.”
The Bulldogs hold a 3-1 all-time record against the Ragin’ Cajuns with the last meeting coming on Sept. 5, 1987. Mississippi State hasn’t played a regular season game in the Superdome since topping Tulane, 38-17, in 2007, but has a career 6-2 record in the stadium.
