Don’t look down: Mississippi State releases stadium skydiving video

Davis Wade Stadium

Ever wondered what it looks like to plunge thousands of feet into a major college football stadium? You don’t have to wonder anymore.

Tuesday, Mississippi State posted a video of a skydiving team’s descent into Davis Wade Stadium before last Saturday’s game against Auburn.

From the dizzying descent to the landing around the 27-yard line, it’s officially stunning.

The video was shot by a “professional skydive demonstration team,” Team Fastrax, which has performed at events including NASCAR races and the opening of Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif.

The skydiving team’s exploits didn’t boost the result on the scoreboard for the Bulldogs, who lost 38-14 to the Tigers in the SEC West meeting. But it provided Mississippi State with a video view that any program in the conference will be hard-pressed to top.
