With the 100 year anniversary of Davis Wade Stadium at Scott Field coming up this fall what better time than now to look back? This is the Top 10 Moments in “Davis Wade” history. That is, since it’s been named Davis Wade Stadium. We’ll go back and list the top 10 moments between each of the stadium expansions as the summer goes on…the current stadium expansion being the inspiration for this series.
We all know what happened on September 11, 2001. In the days that followed all sports across the country were postponed – MSU’s game with BYU was played after the Egg Bowl. But the following week games were scheduled to resume, leaving Mississippi State’s Thursday night matchup with South Carolina as the first college football game to be played after the terrorist attacks.
State lost the game 16-14. It was a game that was the first in many, many losses over the next six years, but this moment is about the celebration of the American spirit that took place that night.
You can watch the entire game in this video, but definitely watch the first 10 minutes.
