COMMENTS

State host Florida in Starkville. MSU started the season looking like the were going to be cellar dwellers but the Bulldogs had other ideas. They've taken series from Arkansas and Ole Miss so they should be able to win at least one over the Gators.

Series Prediction


Florida 2 wins, Mississippi State 1 win
