Report: Oklahoma State, Mississippi State in talks for Labor Day game

Saturday September 29th, 2012

Houston's Reliant Stadium may be the next stadium to host a Labor Day weekend college football game, reports ESPN.com.

A game between Oklahoma State and Mississippi State would be part of a yearly game for Reliant Stadium, the home of the NFL's Houston Texans. Both schools are in talks to play the game next season and the deal is not finalized.

The game would be part of a growing tradition of big games on the opening weekend of the season, joining games played at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta and the Cowboys Classic at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Alabama will play Virginia Tech next season and Ole Miss is slated to play Boise State in 2014 in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game in Atlanta.
