The Mississippi State women’s basketball team will host the University of Miami on Wednesday, Nov. 29, as part of the inaugural ACC/SEC Challenge. Tip-off against the Hurricanes is set for 6:15 p.m. Central time.  

Mississippi State and Miami have met once in the two programs’ history. The Bulldogs defeated the Hurricanes 81-67 on Feb. 27, 1987, in the Northern Lights Invitation at Anchorage, Alaska.

In conference challenge games dating back to the 2015-16 season, Mississippi State owns a 4-2 overall record. State is 1-0 vs. the AAC and 3-2 vs. the Big 12. The Bulldogs have lost their last two conference challenge games vs West Virginia and at Oklahoma.

The 2023 ACC/SEC Challenge is a standalone year. The 2023 home/away designation is not connected to the 2024 ACC/SEC Challenge. Texas and Oklahoma will join the SEC on July 1, 2024, starting a new two-year home/away equitable distribution cycle.
