In 1986, Scott Field was expanded with the addition of an upper deck on the West side. Seating capacity went from 32,000 to 40,656. We’ve already done our list of top 10 moments in the “Davis Wade” era, so this top 10 list will consist of games played at Scott Field from 1986-2000.

1999 was the year of late 4th quarter heroics. Pig Prather’s INT on the MSU 13 yard line vs. Memphis, the comeback on the Plains, the last minute touchdown to beat LSU, the Egg Bowl and this two minute drill from Matt Wyatt and the game-winning 40 yard field goal from Scott Westerfield.

This win preserved MSU’s #8 ranking and undefeated record. 8-0 still stands at the best start to a season in program history.
