Mississippi State is looking to do something that has never happened in the last eight years and that's win three in a row against in-state rival Ole Miss in the Governor's Cup.
The Bulldogs (23-21) and Rebels (23-22) renew the rivalry today at Trustmark Park in Pearl in the ninth annual Governor's Cup. First pitch is scheduled for 6:30 p.m.
EUPORA â€“ It was a fantastic four in the mind of the Eupora Eagles on Monday night.
When the Eagles scored four runs in the first inning, it was something great to see for pitcher Trey Pittman.
Pittman benefitted from the early run support as Eupora went on to take an 11-4 victory over Mantachie in the first game of the second round Class 2A playoff series.
East Webster baseball coach Wes Johnson is going to make sure he has enough pitching to get him through a playoff series.
As a former pitcher himself in high school and at Mississippi State, Johnson puts a great amount of emphasis on performance on the mound.
The Wolverines have won 14-straight games and Johnson said the most consistent area of the team through that stretch has been pitching.
Former Mississippi State Bulldog Martha Alwal may not have heard her name called during the Women's National Basketball Association Draft, but that doesn't mean her dream for a professional basketball career is dashed.
It was announced Monday that Alwal signed a training camp contract with the Atlanta Dream.
Mississippi State women's golf coach Ginger Brown-Lemm wants her team to be focused, but she also wants them to have fun.
She made sure the Bulldogs had fun Monday night.

De'Runnya Wilson was standing on the sideline for many days of Mississippi State's spring practice.
He was nursing a knee injury and for the most part wasn't able to participate in drills with the Bulldogs this spring, but he showed during the Maroon and White Game that it didn't matter.
Luke Templeton was just trying to do his job on the mound for Starkville Academy.
It turned out to be some special.
On Thursday night in the second game of a doubleheader against Pillow Academy, Templeton tossed a five-inning perfect game.
Templeton wanted to give his best effort for the Volunteers and as the game progressed, he saw that he was on the way to an outing to remember.
