For the third time this season, cold temperatures have affected Mississippi State’s baseball schedule. 

While today’s matchup with Texas Southern is on as scheduled with first pitch set for 4 p.m., the Bulldogs’ Wednesday game against Alcorn State has been moved up to 2 p.m. due to cold temperatures in the forecast. 

MSU Athletics stated that because classes will be in session at the time, reserved baseball parking will not be available. ADA parking will still be offered in Lot 2, located between Humphrey Coliseum and the Sanderson Center.

Currently, the projected high in Starkville on Wednesday is 49 with a low of 29. According to the Weather Channel, there is also a 50% chance of rain. 

Cold temperatures forced the Bulldogs to move up the start time of their season opener against Wright State and game one of their series with Oregon State.

Mississippi State was also forced to cancel their matchup with Samford last week due to rain.
