Mississippi State and No. 1 LSU are back at it again today after a 14-inning affair the went well into the night. The Bulldogs will try to even the series tonight on ESPNU. I’ll be battling the deadline monkey again tonight with this being a 7 p.m. first pitch. I’ll also do my best to keep you updated on the NFL Draft in here as well. MSU is wearing maroon hats, maroon “MS” jerseys and white pants and the Tigers are clad in purple hats, purple jerseys and grey pants.
