STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) -- Get ready to ring that cowbell even more, Mississippi State fans!

The rules have just changed in your favor.

Mississippi State University President Mark Keenum says they are expanding the legal periods for ringing cowbells during football games.

In other words, there will be more freedom to ring them.

Dr. Keenum says this year you can ring your cowbell anytime you want to except when the quarterback of the opposing team is about to receive the ball from the center.

"Our fans have done a great job of respecting our traditions, respecting our bell and ringing responsibly and I expect them to continue to do so under these new rules," said Dr. Keenum.

Mississippi State University is the only division one school that can ring an artificial noise maker.
