As Mississippi State football has to account for a road trip to College Station in 2023, Jo’Quavious “Woody” Marks is expecting an interesting environment at Kyle Field.
During the 2023 Mississippi State football season, the Bulldogs will be hitting the road to travel to College Station, Texas to take on the Texas A&M Aggies. With that trip, it appears as if Jo’Quavious “Woody” Marks is expecting to face a raucous home-field advantage.
During SEC Media Days, Marks was presented with the question of identifying the toughest place (other than Davis Wade Stadium) he’s seen in the SEC.
And Marks noted College Station.
“I would probably say Texas A&M,” Marks stated, according to ASAP Sports. “Their stadium gets pretty loud. It’s a big stadium, holds a lot of people. And they play some great football up there.”
While that’s not always the first place many college football fans would think of, it makes sense given the sheer volume of fans that can pack into that place. Kyle Field boasts a capacity of over 102,000 fans.
(I personally didn’t think it was that loud in 2017, but that might be because of how the Aggies and Bulldogs each performed in that game).
Recent history favors Mississippi State football vs. Texas A&M Aggies
But while the Aggies will have a home-field advantage and Marks noted how their fans can get a little loud, recent history between the two programs seems to indicate that the Bulldogs may not have a ton of trouble.
MSU has seen some solid success in recent years against the Aggies. The Bulldogs and Aggies have a near split of the last 10 meetings with the Bulldogs winning six games against A&M during that timeframe.
On top of that, MSU has won three of the last five, and five of the last eight. That said, of the five possible road games for MSU since Texas A&M has joined the conference, the Bulldogs have won just two of them.
