Mississippi State schedules home-and-home with Washington State


If first year Mississippi State Head Football Coach Mike Leach is still around in another 10 years, he’ll get the chance to do battle against his former team.

Today, MSU announced a home-and-home  against Washington State set for August 31st, 2030 in Starkville and August 30th, 2031 in Pullman.

Just in case you were curious, Leach will be 70-years-old by the time that second game rolls around and most of the players that take the field aren’t even 10 yet.

Still, never hurts to plan ahead when it comes to first-ever meetings between the two schools.

Leach went 55-47 during his eight years at Wazzu.
