The No. 5 Mississippi State Bulldogs are back in action at Dudy Noble Field after taking two games from the Oregon State Beavers over the weekend. The Mississippi State baseball team (5-1) will host the Texas Southern Tigers (0-9) this afternoon.
As you can see by Texas Southern’s winless record, the Tigers are struggling this season. This provides Chris Lemonis a chance to experiment with the Bulldogs a little bit and rest some of MSU’s more proven pitchers. State should be afforded a chance to try out some pitchers with a little less experience in this game.
Here’s what you need to know to keep up with the game:
- Who: No. 5 Mississippi State (5-1) vs. Texas Southern (0-9)
- When: Feb. 25 at 4 p.m.
- Where: Starkville, MS.

It’s not often that Mississippi State fans and Ole Miss fans can come together for really anything. It’s a pretty rare occurrence. But today, we’ve got an opportunity for that to happen.
In back-to-back weeks, Will Rogers has completed 86 passes with a 76.1% completion percentage and has thrown for 776 yards and 4 touchdowns. MSU’s young quarterback has given State fans a glimpse at what Leach’s offense is capable of.
The result was disappointing, but Mississippi State fans should be proud of how a depleted roster led by young players performed Saturday.
