STARKVILLE, MS (AP) - Mississippi State's home opener against LSU next fall has been moved to a Thursday night and will be televised on ESPN.

The game will be at 6:30 CT on Sept. 15 at Scott Field. It will be the Bulldogs' third game of the season, but first at home after road games against Memphis and Auburn.

It's the second straight year Mississippi State has hosted a Thursday night ESPN game. The Bulldogs lost to Auburn 17-14 on Sept. 9.

LSU has an 11-game winning streak over Mississippi State, including last year's 29-7 victory in Baton Rouge, La.
