Joe Moorhead went 8-5 in his first season as Mississippi State's head coach. 

A third of the kickoff times for Mississippi State’s football schedule have already been set.

The Bulldogs’ season opener against Louisiana-Lafayette at the Superdome in New Orleans on Aug. 31 has been slated for an 11 a.m. start on ESPNU. MSU is 4-1 all-time against the Ragin’ Cajuns, including a 56-10 victory in Starkville last season.

The Bulldogs’ home opener the following week on Sept. 7 against Southern Miss is scheduled for a 2:30 p.m. kickoff, also on ESPNU. The series with the Golden Eagles is tied 14-14-1 all-time with Mississippi State winning the last meeting 34-16 in Hattiesburg in 2015.

The Bulldogs continue their homestand on Sept. 14 with an 11 a.m. game hosting Kansas State on either ESPN or ESPN2. MSU leads that series 2-0 after a 31-10 win in Manhattan last year.

The Battle for the Golden Egg against Ole Miss is slated for Thanksgiving night at 6:30 on ESPN. The Rebels own a 64-45-6 lead in the series although Mississippi State won 35-3 in Oxford in 2018.

The remainder of the Bulldogs’ kickoff times and television coverage plans will be set at later dates.
