STARKVILLE - Mississippi State University football head coach Dan Mullen has decided to restrict how many public practices fans would be able to see before the start of the 2012 season.
MSU will have just one day (two split-squad practices at 9 a.m. and 7 p.m.) of workouts open to the public and to the media that will be on Saturday.
Normally multiple days of practice have been open but Mullen has decided to close up shop before he starts year four in Starkville.
MSU fan day will be at 1 p.m. on Aug. 25 in the Palmeiro Center.
