Mississippi State football fans will be allowed to bring cowbells into Reliant Stadium when the bulldogs open the 2013 season against Oklahoma State in Houston, TX.
MSU Athletic Director Scott Stricklin announced via Twitter on Thursday morning. The tweet read:
"Just got word that cowbells are being allowed in Houston for @TexasKickoff! Let’s fill Reliant Stadium with Maroon & White. #HailState."
The Tupelo-Colubmus station WTVA reports the rules for when fans can ring their cowbells will be consistent with MSU home games.
"State" and the SEC made a deal that went into effect for the 2010 football season outlining when cowbells could be rung during conference games. Fans can ring them before a game, at half-time, in between quarters, during time-outs and (of course) when the bulldogs score.
Mississippi State will face Oklahoma State on August 31st.
