UCF at it again: Knights, Mississippi State fans spar on social media over space uniforms
Not many would think Mississippi State and UCF fans would be rivals. The Bulldogs play in the SEC. The Knights play in the AAC. The two teams haven’t gone head-to-head since 2007.
But there’s one thing the programs have in common that had fans chirping back and forth on Twitter on Friday: space-themed uniforms.
That’s right, both Mississippi State and UCF will be wearing uniforms with ties to space in the coming weeks. The Knights are wearing special uniforms for their annual “Space Day” game against Tulane on Saturday. Meanwhile, the Bulldogs are wearing throwback uniforms for their homecoming game against Vanderbilt on Nov. 7 that will feature the Flying M, which has ties to the United States space program.
So, which space-themed uniform is better? There were plenty on social media with opinions on that topic.
Here’s what some fans on Twitter were saying after both teams decided to have space ties to upcoming uniform designs:
To the point at hand, UCF fans think they created space and we are all following in their footsteps and bow to their farcical greatness. 🗑 https://t.co/oeX3tnVCHA

This tweet right here is part of the bad experiences people (including me) have had with UCF fans.
No reason to act so jealous here. UCF doesn’t have a trademark on space uniforms. https://t.co/VJlK2piaV4

🤣 Mississippi State creates “Flying M” logo early 60’s, helmets/football uni’s 1966-71. UCF isn’t even a school in ‘66. UCF thinks a throwback uni is copying UCF’s “Space Day”? Guess they never attended a Discover MSU Day in the 80’s! 🤣 UCF being UCF! 😂https://t.co/hWCKZ2vFqK https://t.co/6btFXD88k6

MSU originated the space uni. UCF is only an imitation.
