    History

    Since 1914, the Mississippi State Bulldogs have played at Scott Field, which is named after Don Magruder Scott. It was not until the construction of concrete grandstands in 1936 and 1948, however, that the stadium took its current shape. After the 1948 project, seating capacity stood at 35,000, where it remained until 1983, when it was reduced to 32,000. A $7.2 million project in 1986 increased this to over 41,000. A $30 million renovation was completed in 2002. In addition to adding several luxury boxes, the total seating capacity was increased to its current 55,082. Due to his substantial donations to the 2002 renovation, the stadium was renamed in honor of Floyd Davis Wade, Sr. The stadium, also known as the “Dawg Pound,” is the second oldest in major college football. After September 11, 2001, the first division I-A college football game played was a Mississippi State-South Carolina game at the stadium on September 20, 2001. In 2008, a $6.1 million video-display board was installed in the north end zone. It is the second-largest video board in college football.
