All six scrimmages at Smith-Wills will be open to the public.

The games are being played in Jackson because Dudy Noble Field in Starkville is undergoing a $55 million renovation project. Work will not be completed until 2019, but MSU will still play games at Dudy Noble during the 2018 regular season in the spring.
