SEC targets Miss. State’s ‘unfair’ homefield advantage, which surprisingly exists

The idea of an “unfair advantage” at Davis-Wade Stadium seems ludicrous at first blush: In the first place, it’s the second-smallest stadium in the conference with a capacity of just over 55,000; even with the cowbells at full clatter, the noise level doesn’t approach the peak decibels of the 90,000-seat monsters at Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, Auburn and LSU. And in the second, the Bulldogs are just 14-26 in SEC games in Davis-Wade over the last decade, topping only Vanderbilt and Kentucky for home winning percentage in that span. They haven’t won more than two conference games there in the same season since 2000.
