We’ll have to wait a little bit longer before #3 Ole Miss and Mississippi State face off. Friday’s scheduled Game 1 has been postponed due to inclement weather. The Rebels and Bulldogs will play two Saturday starting at 12:00pm.
You have teams on opposite ends of success. The Rebels are 26 - 4, number 3 in the nation and lead the SEC West. The Bulldogs are at .500 and in the division cellar.
Here's both skippers of Egg Bowl baseball before tomorrow's opener.
Mike Bianco (Ole Miss)
"They wear maroon and we wear red and blue. I've always said it doesn't matter what you play. If it's checkers, you could sell out a stadium, our fans want to win and their fans want to win. So 100%, there's a rivalry in baseball."
Gary Henderson (Mississippi State)
"Well at this point you certainly hope that we continue to get better and we play better as the season progresses. There's an obvious similarity: They played a bunch of freshmen last year, we're doing that this year. Sometimes the early part of that can be tough."
#3 Ole Miss and Mississippi State will begin their series Friday in Starkville.
#3 Ole Miss (26-4 overall, 6-3 SEC) at Mississippi State (15-15 overall, 2-7 SEC)
