The SEC softball tournament is here! After the Bulldogs took the series from the Kentucky Wildcats over the weekend, Mississippi State finished the season at 36-19 and 10-14 in SEC play. Both of those marks are considerable improvements upon where Stuedeman’s squad finished the regular season a year ago.

And now they’re set to face off against a familiar foe in the SEC tournament, in-state rival, Ole Miss.

The Rebels and Bulldogs will face off at 1:30 CT in Knoxville, Tennessee. And the two teams are fairly evenly matched on paper. The Rebels took the first matchup back on a Wednesday night in March in Oxford by a score of 2-0.

However, whichever team wins in the first round will find a daunting task ahead of them in the second round. The winner of this game will get the pleasure of squaring up with the top ranked Florida Gators who sit at a record of 50-5 on the season.
