The missing piece to the 2015 schedule has been announced, kind of. Scott Stricklin responded to a tweet that MSU would be playing Northwestern State as part of the 2015 football schedule.

Northwestern State is a FCS school and joins Troy, Louisiana Tech and Southern Miss on the schedule.

The usual cast of SEC West teams will be there: Auburn, Alabama, LSU, Arkansas, Texas A&M and Ole Miss.

From the East MSU will play Kentucky at home and Missouri on the road.
