Mississippi State will try to rebound from last night’s 4-3 loss. A crucial error by Seth Heck at third base cost the Bulldogs the eventual game-winning run in the bottom of the eighth. Matthew Britton will get the start at the hot corner tonight. Remember that tonight’s game will also be on the SEC Network. Ole Miss will wear navy hats with red bills, red jerseys and white pants with navy piping down the leg. MSU is wearing maroon hats, maroon “MS” jerseys and grey pants.

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.
