Mississippi State’s $75M Stadium Upgrade

On September 7, the SEC’s Mississippi State Bulldogs return to Davis Wade Stadium for their home football opener against Alcorn State, but the University’s ongoing $75 million expansion project won’t inconvenience their 55,000+ cowbell-ringing fans one bit.

Scheduled for completion before the 2014 season, Davis Wade’s new north end zone adds approximately 8,815 new seats to the second oldest on-campus stadium in Division I-A. The project’s most notable additions: a new plaza near the famous Junction, an updated west concourse, a large HD video scoreboard, and premium areas for season ticket holders and alumni with field level viewing.

Trivia question – What’s the only on-campus Division I-A stadium older than Davis Wade Stadium?  Leave a comment below.

Although much work remains on the project, the west concourse, elevators and restrooms will open in time for this season’s opener. In the first video below, Mississippi State Athletic Director Scott Stricklin tours the construction zone to explain how the new West concourse is both wider and actually level now. Fun! The second offers and overview of the project. Take a look at the videos below and visit the University’s project web site.
