Year Opened: 1914 | Field Surface: Natural Grass
Mississippi State's Davis Wade Stadium is the second-oldest FBS stadium in the country, opening in 1914 as Scott Field. The stadium was named for Don Scott, one of the Bulldogs' earliest football stars and an Olympic sprinter.
The venue has undergone several expansions and fund-raising for expanding it from the present capacity of 55,082 is ongoing. An expansion that took place in 2000 and 2001 added 1,700 club seats and 50 skyboxes, as well as 7,000 upper-deck seats. A majority of the funding for that upgrade came from Floyd Davis Wade Sr., a longtime fan of the school and the stadium was renamed in his honor in 2001.
The Junction is exactly what the name implies -- a meeting spot for Bulldogs fans and the largest tailgate area in Starkville. The grassy park on campus was named The Junction for the railroad that ran through the tailgating area prior to its construction. It also replaced "Malfunction Junction," a set of adjacent intersections where six streets entered the MSU campus. After the streets were rerouted and a park was built, The Junction became the perfect spot for thousands of fans to meet without worry of traffic. Within the property is a bronze sculpture of Bully, the school's English bulldog mascot. The live Bully can be seen on Scott Field, during the game, and at his home, the school's College of Veterinary Medicine.
Gotta have more cowbell? Davis Wade Stadium is the place for you. For most of the last three decades, fans endured ringing in their ears as cowbells are one of the school's favorite ways to cheer on the Bulldogs. Despite being banned by the Southeastern Conference, it seemed every fan was ringing cowbells during the game. In 2010, the school and conference struck a compromise allowing the cowbells to be rung only during pregame, at the end of each quarter and when the Bulldogs scored.
The "Dawg Walk" is a pregame ritual during which the team and coaches walk through The Junction to the stadium, accompanied by the university band and thousands of cheering fans.
