Mississippi State-Ole Miss Prediction

This series is probably the marquee SEC baseball series of the weekend. Mississippi State visits Ole Miss in a rivalry showdown. Both teams are 15-9 in the conference and will be fighting for a top 8 national seed in the NCAA tourney. State has the edge in pitching and hitting while the Rebels a slightly better fielding. Ole Miss is a dangerous team though, they are the only team in the SEC that has won a series at Arkansas. This series is probably more important for Ole Miss. The Rebels travel to Tennessee in the final weekend while the Bulldogs will host an awful South Carolina squad. Swayze Field should be rocking this weekend. Ole Miss 2 wins, Mississippi State 1 win.
