Mississippi State was picked to finish second in the Southeastern Conference Western Division standings and also received four votes to win the conference outright by the league’s head coaches on Tuesday.

The Diamond Dogs finished one point behind LSU in the SEC West and also one behind South Carolina, who was picked to win the league this year.

Coaches were not permitted to vote for their own team.

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.
