The No. 16 Mississippi State Bulldogs may be on the road to face the No. 3 Texas Tech Red Raiders, but they’re still in their home state. Mississippi State and Texas Tech are meeting down in Biloxi, Mississippi for an incredibly intriguing midweek series.
The Bulldogs and the Red Raiders are both looking to make it to Omaha to compete in the College World Series this season and a couple of early season wins against a non-conference foe would go a long way to boosting both of these teams resumes.
Tech has won 12 games in a row and the Bulldogs are going to have their hands full in both of these games.
Here’s what you need to watch game one:
- Who: No. 16 Mississippi State (10-4) vs. No. 3 Texas Tech (16-1)
- When: March 10 at 6 p.m.
- Where: Biloxi, MS.
How to watch:
- TV Channel: SEC Network+

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.
