Welcome to Super Bulldog Weekend and hopefully the rain will hold off to get everything in. Things get started tonight against No. 6 Florida at 6:30 p.m. on SEC Network +. Mississippi State is wearing maroon hats, maroon “MS” jerseys and white pants while the Gators are clad in blue hats and grey uniforms. I probably won’t have a game thread tomorrow because I’ll be working on football stuff during the baseball game.
