South Carolina-Mississippi State Prediction

South Carolina pulled off an inspiring 2-1 series win over Kentucky in Columbia last weekend. It’s probably going to be the highlight of the Gamecock’s season. Injury depleted South Carolina hits the road again against one of the SEC’s best teams and at one of the most brutal road venues in the country. Mississippi State 3 wins, South Carolina 0 win.
