STARKVILLE, Miss.--Due to the predicted high temperatures on Saturday when the Mississippi State Bulldogs welcome the Alcorn University Braves in MSU's home opener at Davis Wade Stadium, MSU President Mark E. Keenum and Athletics Director Scott Stricklin urge caution to our fans and guests.
"In partnership with Clark Beverage Group and Learfield Sports, we will be offering free bottled water to our fans outside gates A, D and L while supplies last," said Keenum. "We appreciate the generosity of our friends at Clark Beverages and Learfield Sports making this possible, along with Aramark and the MSU Athletics Department."
Keenum urged fans to take reasonable precautions against the heat. "We all need to stay hydrated, utilize sunscreen, and dress comfortably and appropriately for the high temperatures," he said.
MSU will, as always, maintain emergency services and first responders in the stadium and fans are urged to follow the signs in Davis Wade Stadium to access medical attention via text or other means and to contact ushers or security if assistance is needed.
