The Mississippi State Bulldogs opened their season with a 59 – 9 win over Jackson State. The Bulldogs had 395 total yards and quarterback Tyler Russell was 15-24 on the day with 2 touchdown passes.
But the Dawgs almost didn’t make it on the field thanks to heavy fog from their own fog machine.

A smoke machine created a fog that the Bulldogs were supposed to dramatically run through only to trip over each other and create a chain reaction and fodder for Mississippi State's rival fan bases.
In a move almost straight out of “Little Giants,” Mississippi State’s football team had a failed entrance onto the field for their season-opening game against Jackson State on Saturday. Several players ran into and tumbled over the fog machine that’s supposed to make the team look mysterious and intimidating as they run out of the tunnel and onto the field. Instead, the...
