STARKVILLE, Miss. — The Mississippi State football program will be bringing back the Flying M logo for its homecoming game on Nov. 7 against the Vanderbilt Commodores.
The throwback uniforms pay homage to Mississippi State teams of the late 1960s and early ‘70s.
The Flying M logo was worn over a six-year period to signify Mississippi State’s close ties to the United States space program and America’s drive to land the first man on the moon. Aerospace and aeronautics research is a major pride point for Mississippi State University. MSU is part of the FAA Center of Excellence for Unmanned Aerial Systems, continuing the tradition of national excellence in flight.
