Watch: Mississippi State Football Shares Heartwarming Video Ahead of Senior Day

The Bulldogs will face ETSU in what will be the last game in Davis Wade Stadium for many graduating players.

Mississippi State's final home game of the season against East Tennessee State will be different from any other contest this year.

The team's 22 seniors will be honored ahead of kickoff in MSU's annual Senior Day celebration. Although there are two more games remaining on the season -- the Egg Bowl and the team's unannounced postseason bowl game -- this will be the last time that quite a few players get to take the field to the sound of cowbells.

MSU posted a short video on its Twitter account that featured many of the student-athletes who will be recognized. In it, the players thanked their fans and acknowledged what it was like to play for Mississippi State

"Gamedays at Davis Wade are one-of-a-kind," kicker Massimo Biscardi said. 

The team went on to share how playing in front of the crowd of cowbells made them feel.

"One word to describe my time here at Mississippi State is... awesome," wide receiver Caleb Ducking said.

"Grateful," linebacker Nathaniel Watson added.

After sharing some of the things that they would miss the most about playing for the Bulldogs -- with teammates and fans being at the top of the list -- the seniors took one last chance to express gratitude to everyone who offered support.

"Thank you for the opportunity, thank you for the support and all the love," linebacker Sherman Timbs said.
