STARKVILLE, Miss. — No. 9 Mississippi State Baseball is set to host No. 21 Southern Miss Golden Eagles in a three-game series this weekend at Dudy Noble Field.

Previously scheduled for 4 p.m., first pitch between the Bulldogs and Golden Eagles is now slated for 2:30 p.m. CT today due to the threat of inclement weather in the forecast. The squads will then play single games on Saturday at 2 p.m. and Sunday at 1 p.m.

This is the first top-25 matchup for the Bulldogs in the young 2019 campaign. The Bulldogs are 4-0 this year after sweeping Youngstown State in a three-game series last weekend and beating UAB 3-2 on Wednesday.

The Golden Eagles sit at 3-0 after sweeping Purdue last weekend. Their midweek contest was rained out.

Sophomore Tanner Allen is coming off a week where he earned two national player of the week awards after he drove in 13 RBIs and owned a .538 on-base percentage in three games last week.

Friday Probable Starters:

MSU LHP Ethan Small (0-0, 3.60 ERA) vs. Southern Miss RHP Walker Powell (0-0, 2.25 ERA)
