Alabama-Mississippi State Prediction

Alabama had a solid series last weekend, nearly sweeping a struggling South Carolina squad. It’s back to normal for the Tide baseball team this week as they travel to a very good Mississippi State team. Alabama might win one but Mississippi State should win this series. Mississippi State 2 wins, Alabama 1 win.
