Come this weekend, Mississippi State will have a new top dog on campus.
Bully XXII, or “Dak,” will take over as the university’s live mascot at halftime of Saturday’s spring football game. Upon receiving the harness from “Jak” (Bully XXI), who enters retirement after eight years, Dak will officially assume his sideline duties.
I have some big paw prints to fill. Enjoy your retirement, Jak! https://t.co/GHAG1ykXNr

Named after Mississippi State legend and current Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott, “Dak” was selected to succeed “Jak” in 2021 shortly after birth. After two years of growing and training, the time has come for him to begin roaming the sidelines.
Mississippi State’s spring game will kick off Saturday at noon at Davis Wade Stadium as part of Super Bulldog Weekend.
