Central Mississippi Colleges

The Delta Devils & Jackson Tigers


Central Mississippi is home to two universities – the Jackson State Tigers and the Mississippi Valley State Delta Devils.

Both teams compete in the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) in most Division I college sports.

Neighboring regions like Canton, Indianola, Yazoo City, and Vicksburg continuously make the short journey year round for the thrilling action.

The Jackson State Tigers have maintained a wonderful football tradition since their inaugural season in 1956. The Tigers play home at games at Mississippi Veterans Memorial Stadium – with a capacity of over 60,000.

Head north of Jackson to the charming town of Itta Bena, home of the Mississippi Valley State Delta Devils and the alma matter of pro football hall of famer, Jerry Rice. The Delta Devils also compete in the SWAC, playing home games at Rice-Totten Field.

Although Rice-Totten Field has a much smaller capacity of just 10,000, that hasn't stopped the passionate Delta Devil fan base from creating an electric atmosphere on Saturdays. Be a part of central Mississippi's college football tradition this fall from August to December.

College hoops are alive and well in Itta Bena and Jackson from November to March, and visitors are sure to catch the "madness" as well. The Delta Devils run the hardwood in the SWAC at Harrison HPER Complex, where they have made multiple NCAA Tournament appearances and won several conference tournament championships as well.

However, if forest green and white are not your colors, you can head south to the capital city of Jackson, home of the Jackson State Tigers. Donning royal blue and white, the men and women's teams play home games at Williams Assembly Center – featuring a raucous home crowd of roughly 8,000, helping them make numerous NCAA Tournament appearances.

Both central Mississippi schools play hard when it comes to baseball as well, and spring time is the perfect time to catch an NCAA baseball game. Check out Bradley Field, where the Jackson State Tigers out-hustle all challengers from February to June. The Division I ball park was opened in 2006 and seats 800 baseball fans.

Likewise, the Delta Devils of Itta Bena tattoo fastballs at Magnolia Field, where they go head-to-head with fellow SWAC baseball clubs during the spring.
