The Oklahoma State Cowboys and the Mississippi State Bulldogs are in discussions to play at Reliant Stadium in Houston in 2013, NewsOK has reported.
The game would be played on August 31, which would be the season-opener for both schools.
If the match-up is finalized, it would be the fifth meeting between the two schools and second game to be played off campus. The first meeting occurred in Jackson, MS in 1970, with the remaining games played in Stillwater (1971 and 1998) and Starkville (1999). The series is tied at two games each.
Oklahoma State is currently slated to travel to UTSA on Sept. 7 and host Lamar on Sept. 14. The game against the Bulldogs would finalize their 2013 non-conference schedule.
Mississippi State’s 2013 non-SEC schedule would also be completed with the addition of the Oklahoma State game. The Bulldogs are scheduled to visit UAB on Sept. 7 and host Troy on Sept. 21 and Bowling Green on Oct. 12.
Update (10/11/12): The game has now been officially announced.
