Mississippi State needs to bounce back with a series win as the season prepares to hit the home stretch. Here is how you can keep up with the Bulldogs' efforts.

Super Bulldog Weekend has kicked off in Starkville, and one of the usual bright spots has always been the Bulldogs squaring off against an SEC foe in a three game series. This weekend's series against the No. 6 Florida Gators has an additional level of importance attached to it as it feels like a line in the sand moment on salvaging the 2015 baseball season.

Tickets still remain for the games, but for fans unable to make the trip to Starkville, all of the action will be carried on various channels and outlets.

HOW TO WATCH

Friday - 6:30 pm on SECNetwork +

Saturday - 2pm on SECNetwork

Fans can also listen to the games across the Mississippi State Baseball Radio Network or through HailState.com/plus
