When you think Mississippi State and Ole Miss, you immediately think football, basketball, and baseball. The Bulldogs and Rebels are faring well this spring in other sports.
Both teams were selected Sunday to the NCAA Softball Tournament. Both will travel to the state of Arizona. MSU will compete in the Tucson Regional, while Ole Miss heads to Tempe.

The rivals are also in the mix for a national title in men's tennis. The Dawgs and Rebs both advanced to the Sweet 16 in Winston Salem, North Carolina with wins this past weekend. MSU beat South Alabama in Starkville while Ole Miss upset #4 Stanford in Palo Alto.
MSU and Ole Miss will also compete on the links this week. They'll tee off NCAA Regional play Monday in Bryan, Texas.
Ole Miss will represent the Magnolia State this week in the NCAA Women's Golf Championship. The Rebels are making their first appearance in program history. This year's squad features Jackson Academy alum Conner Beth Ball.
