Final Day of SEC Baseball Open Thread: MSU-Bama, Ole Miss-TAMU, Vandy-SC, LSU-Auburn

USA TODAY Sports

Game 30 of the SEC season has arrived, at least for most teams (looking at you Bama and LSU). Florida and Ole Miss have locked up the top two seeds, and Missouri has secured the bottom. Everyone else will still sort out based on play today. Four teams are competing for the third and fourth seed, and Georgia and Auburn are battling to make the tournament.

The final day of regular SEC play has arrived, and there is much still on the line across the league. Mississippi State, LSU, South Carolina, and Vanderbilt all can clinch a first round bye in the SEC tournament depending on play today ( For more, check out this on Team Speed Kills).

Mississippi State will know much of what has happened by the time they take the field at 3:05 in a game that can be seen on CSS and ESPN3.com.  For scoreboard watchers, this is what should keep your attention today:

Vanderbilt vs. South Carolina: Mississippi State fans should pull for Vanderbilt.  The Commodores dropped their season series to Mississippi State, so if they finish with a tied record, the Bulldogs stay ahead of them in the seeding.  If South Carolina wins and the Bulldogs lose, South Carolina gets the nod for the three seed because they defeated Ole Miss, the highest seeded common opponent for both teams.  This game can be seen on CBSSportsNetwork at 1 CT.

LSU vs. Auburn: The Tigers from Baton Rouge can clinch a top four spot with a win and some help.  Should LSU lose, Mississippi State will be assured a top four seed in Hoover.  LSU and Auburn square off at 1 in a game not available on ESPN3 in much of SEC territory, but those that live in that area can watch on FSN.

Ole Miss vs. Texas A&M: Yes, the Ole Miss Rebels clinched the No. 2 seed with a win last night, but they have not clinched the outright SEC West title.  Should the Rebels lose and the Bulldogs win, the two will tie atop the SEC West.  That game can be seen on ESPN3 starting at 2 CT.

At the other end of the spectrum, Georgia and Auburn are battling to get into the tournament.  The Tigers need to defeat LSU and see Georgia fall to Kentucky.

Missouri has already been eliminated from the SEC Tournament.

With seedings and more on the line, it should make for an interesting day around the league.
