Jackson State Coach Deion Sanders urges fans of all Mississippi college football teams to help Jackson State try to win its first conference title since 2007.

“This is the only time, this is a moment when Mississippi State, Mississippi Valley, Alcorn, Ole Miss, I missed someone else? Who’s still here? Southern Miss,” Sanders said. “All. We have to team up. You can wear your school colors, but you must represent Mississippi.

Sanders said he doesn’t mind fans wearing the colors of rival schools, he just wants as many people as possible to come to the game.

“I don’t mind if you wear your Alcorn colors,” said Sanders. “I don’t mind if you wear your Mississippi Valley colors. I just want you to be in the stands because this is Mississippi versus (everyone else). It is.

“And we want everyone to come together and package this event, package this game the way it should be, so we can understand that the SWAC has a purpose and is present. I think we’ve been showing that all year and this game shouldn’t be any different. ” . “

Jackson State has an average of more than 40,000 fans at home games and more than 53,000 draws on two occasions. Last week’s final win of the regular season against Alcorn saw 58,892 participants, which was more than at the Egg Bowl.
