Mississippi State announced Monday that the Bulldogs will wear a helmet decal honoring freshman defensive end Keith Joseph, Jr. and his father, Keith Joseph, Sr., who both died in a car accident Friday night.
The decal consists of the initials “MJ” — the name that Joseph Jr. was known by to his teammates.
