Who knew there would be so much riding on the season opener between Southern Miss and Mississippi State? Turns out you can get some free bling if an upset occurs.
A jewelry shop in Pearl, Mississippi is allowing customers the chance to get a full refund (and you get to keep the product) on all purchases during the month of August if the Golden Eagles can defeat their cross-state foes on September 5th:
The most surprising thing about this game, to me, is that the Bulldogs only hold a 15-12-1 series lead in games played between the schools. The last meeting took place in 1990, when MSU shut out the Southern Miss 49-0. This game, however, is being played in Hattiesburg, so one would think the Golden Eagles would at least get on the board this time.
