Troy University Director of Athletics Steve Dennis recently announced that a contract has been signed with Mississippi State University (MSU) to bring the Bulldogs to Movie Gallery Veterans Stadium during the 2012 season.
The game with MSU that year is the first of three games with the Bulldogs. TROY will travel to Starkville to face MSU in 2013 and 2015.
The home game with the Bulldogs is scheduled for Sept. 8, 2012, and gives TROY a guaranteed six home games. The other non-conference games on the schedule that year are at UAB (Sept. 15), at Tennessee (Nov. 3) and at home against Navy (Nov. 10).
TROY faced the Bulldogs in each of its first two seasons of play as a member of Division I. The Trojans defeated the Bulldogs 21-9 in 2001 and dropped an 11-8 decision to MSU in 2002.
