Mississippi State is in good position after the first three weekends of Southeastern Conference play.
The Bulldogs have won their first three SEC series and are tied for first in the Western Division with a 6-3 league record. Alabama is also at 6-3 after sweeping Ole Miss in Tuscaloosa this past weekend to tie State for the top spot in the West.Â
MSU had to overcome adversity this past weekend. The Bulldogs fell to Arkansas in game one of a doubleheader. They rebounded and won game two and won the rubber game on Sunday to take the series.
It is the first time in John Cohen's six years as the MSU coach that he has taken a series against the Razorbacks. It's also the first time for the Bulldogs to beat Arkansas in a series since 2008.
"Everybody's trying to win their series," Cohen said. "Everybody wants to win their game, but realistically everybody is trying to win their series. In some circumstances, there's a little bit of luck that's involved with the scheduling component. Are you playing somebody who's playing really well at that moment? Are you playing somebody who's not playing well at that moment?"
