Mississippi State adds #SNOWBOWL12 to end zone for Texas A&M game

By Chip Patterson | Staff Writer

Texas A&M's first season in the SEC has included several tributes to the past. But reuniting with old SWC foe Arkansas or renewing the annual meetings with LSU aren't the only games on the Aggies' SEC schedule with some unique history.

On Saturday, Texas A&M will play Mississippi State for the first time since the 2000 Independence Bowl -- a game later tabbed "The Snow Bowl" due to, well, all of the snow. Plenty of football games have been played in the snow, but not many of those take place in Shreveport, La.

To commemorate the meeting, Mississippi State will be wearing all-white uniforms and will likely include some tribute to the game -- a 43-41 thriller that the Bulldogs won in overtime -- during the contest.

The Bulldogs have also declared an official hashtag for the game and painted it across their end zone. The picture below (courtesy of Friends of the Program) shows the hashtag, in all it's un-snowy glory. According to, the forecast for Saturday is a high of 81 degrees with a 0 percent chance of precipitation.
