Mississippi State received its fourth Preseason Top 10 ranking.

The Diamond Dogs begin the season ranked No. 4 in the USA Today Coaches Top 25. MSU received four first place votes trailing No. 1 Cal State Fullerton who received 18 first place votes and No. 2 LSU who got six.

The Bulldogs sit behind third-ranked Oregon State, who Mississippi State defeated twice in the 2013 College World Series.

John Cohen’s club will begin the season No. 2 by Collegiate Baseball, No. 6 by Perfect Game and No. 8 by Baseball America.

Other SEC programs in the USA Today Coaches Top 25 include Vanderbilt (8), South Carolina (14) and Florida (20). Texas A&M, Ole Miss, Arkansas and Alabama also received votes.

I have covered Mississippi State in some capacity since 2004 and joined the Daily Journal staff in 2013. I enjoy short walks on the beach, performing concerts in my car and watching professional wrestling.
