Ranger Challenge Team
Ranger Challenge is the varsity sport of Army ROTC. A Ranger Challenge Team is made up of nine cadets, two alternates and at least one female. They compete against other colleges throughout the nation in events such as: patrolling, marksmanship, weapons assembly, one-rope bridge, grenade assault course, Army Physical Fitness Test, land navigation, and a ten-kilometer road march.
The Bulldog Battery is a team of cadets that have an active roll during football games at Davis Wade Stadium. The team marches the flag into the stadium and raises and lowers the flag before and after each game The team celebrates touchdowns by performing pushups on the field and firing the cannon.
Being part of the Color Guard allows cadet to learn the proper procedures for presenting the colors. Once trained, they will get an opportunity to represent the ROTC program in public sporting events and other major activities.
Egg Bowl Run Team
The Egg Bowl run is a tradition among the MSU and Ole Miss Army ROTC programs that began in 2013. A football is signed by the PMS and head football coaches of both schools and is taken on foot by a team of runners to the school hosting the Egg Bowl Game. the football begins its journey in either Starkville or Oxford, and is handed off to the receiving program in Calhoun City. From Calhoun City, the ball is taken to the school hosting the Eggbowl Game. The ball travels a total of 100 miles with MSU Cadets running the majority with about 60 miles and the Ole Miss Cadets only running about 40 miles. This is a great way for all of the Cadets, including the rival school, to get together and further build team work between each other. We would love to see everyone on the side lines cheering us on as we make this long journey!
