When the Mississippi State Bulldogs travel to Memphis on Thursday, September 1st, they will be traveling without their cowbells.
Memphis confirmed the cowbells are not allowed at the Liberty Bowl, where both teams will open their seasons.
Also, Florida posted the same cowbell ban last year in the Swamp. However, I was there, and the cowbells were present despite this ban.
The Gator Bowl did allow State fans to ring their bells when they thrashed Michigan 52-14.
State fans will just have to ring their bells at Scott Field this season thanks to the cowbell compromise made by the SEC athletic directors and presidents. Click here to read more about Miss State Cowbells.
