With a sweep over Alabama during Super Bulldog Weekend, Mississippi State improved to 31-6 on the season, and they lead the SEC West with a 10-5 record in the conference. MSU entered the weekend as the #6 team in the country, and they have now moved up to #3, according to d1baseball.com.

Next up for the Bulldogs is a Tuesday matchup with Texas Southern ahead of a series at Arkansas that will begin on Thursday.

Ole Miss (25-12) won the first of their 3-game series with Kentucky on Friday, but things went downhill from there. Rain forced the Rebels and the Wildcats to play two-seven inning games on Sunday and the Rebels lost them both. Ole Miss is still 9-6 in the SEC, which their best conference play record at the halfway point since 2014. 

With the series loss, Ole Miss dropped from #11 to #15.
