Welcome to the final day of Super Bulldog Weekend here on the campus of Mississippi State. I’ve been battling a bout of food poisoning the last couple of days and haven’t eaten since Friday. I’m feeling better today than I did yesterday so hopefully I’ll try to eat something after this one is over. Its another big crowd today but not the same as Friday or Saturday. I expect State to break the 3-game SEC series attendance record the weekend as well. The Bulldogs are wearing maroon hats, black jerseys and white pants while Ole Miss is clad in navy hats and grey uniforms.

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.
