Troopers make some of the best tackles of the day when PETA protesters interrupt MSU football game

The Mississippi State security staff did some of the best blocking on the field of Davis-Wade Stadium Saturday afternoon when the Bulldogs lost to Texas A&M.

Video emerged during Saturday’s game in which two women were tackled and removed from the field in Starkville.

Matt Bush of USA TODAY Sports captured a photo in which he details a “Mississippi Highway Patrolman apprehends a fan who ran onto the field and displayed a PETA sign during the first quarter of the game between the Mississippi State Bulldogs and the Texas A&M Aggies at Davis Wade Stadium at Scott Field.

Last year, PETA sent Mississippi State a letter asking them to retire their live mascot and to pledge not to use live mascots anymore.
