Auburn vs. Mississippi State programs down through the (Phil Neel-less) years

Not all of the non-Neel Auburn vs. Mississippi State programs from 1938 to 1993 (go here for the good stuff), but a lot.

They’re no Neels, of course—and you can obviously see a team’s need for a dedicated artist in the Rockwellian-era (unless it’s, like, we’re supposed to channeling that Medfield underdog to Mississippi State’s red-jersied Rutland—and when has that ever needed to happen?—the 1956 cover seems unfortunate for a home game program)—but I’ll never complain about Auburn coeds (1989) or Bo (1985) or rah-rah raccoon coats (1958), or what is possibly the most patriotic program cover in the history of patriotism (1944), and trust me—what with the stuff stirred up in the wake of War World II, that’s saying a lot.
