Mississippi State University
Mississippi State Cheerleading has taken cheer to a whole new level. Their colors are crimson and white and their mascot is the Bully. Their cheer program consists of both and co-ed squad and an all-girl squad. The co-ed contains around eight to ten couples. This team cheers at nearly all football games and men's home basketball games. On the other hand, the all-girl team has about twenty cheerleaders total. They cheer at home football games, as well as women's games and volleyball. Both teams go to nationals each year and place well. This past year, the co-ed team left their mark by placing really well at the UCA College Nationals. They placed fourth just behind UK, UCF, and the University of Alabama. This division that they placed in was the 1A Division, which is known as the toughest division because of the extreme competitive nature of the large schools.
