Mississippi State has scheduled a future home-and-home with a Big Ten program.
The Bulldogs will take on Minnesota in 2026 and 2027, the two schools announced on Wednesday.
Mississippi State will travel to TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis on Sept. 12, 2026, and host the Gophers on Sept. 11, 2027 at Davis Wade Stadium.
It will be the first meeting between the the two teams, and Mississippi State’s first trip to the state of Minnesota in program history.
The last time the Bulldogs played a Big Ten opponent was on Nov. 4, 1980 where Mississippi State topped Illinois, 28-21, on the road.
