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.

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.
Maybe Mike Leach’s friendship with Lane Kiffin will take the edge off the 2020 Egg Bowl. Or maybe because it’s 2020 and it’s the Egg Bowl everything will be a disaster.
