Mississippi State-Texas A&M Prediction

Note: MSU-Texas A&M Thursday game postponed for weather. Double header will be played on Friday. This is one of the better series of the weekend. Mississippi State, fresh off a huge sweep over Georgia, now hits the road to College Station and A&M. The Bulldogs are the better hitting team while the Aggies have the edge in pitching. Fielding is about even. Playing in Blue Bell Park the Aggies should pull out a series victory but anything can happen. Texas A&M 2 wins, Mississippi State 1 win.
