Road Dawgs tour concludes

The Mississippi State University Alumni Association and the Bulldog Club hosted their 2015 Road Dawgs Tour in May with a total of 10 stops throughout Mississippi, Alabama and Texas. The tour began in Meridian and ended in Vicksburg with about 1,800 individuals participating in the largest tour yet.

This year’s tour included head football coach Dan Mullen, with guest appearances by football defensive coordinator Manny Diaz, head women’s basketball coach Vic Schaefer, and new head men’s basketball coach Ben Howland.

Road Dawgs is a partnership between the Alumni Association, its alumni chapters, and the Bulldog Club that encourages enthusiasm and promotes school spirit for the upcoming football season. The annual circuit is a great opportunity for university and athletic department officials to visit with fans throughout the region.

Mississippi State kicks off its football season on Sept. 5 against Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg. The first home game will be Sept. 12 when the Bulldogs host the LSU Tigers. For more information on the Bulldogs football schedule, please visit
