The Mississippi State men's tennis team is one year older and has one more year of experience under its belt.
The Bulldogs also have experienced the feeling of hosting a regional.
MSU hosted a regional last season, but were unable to take advantage of the home court advantage.
This season the Bulldogs enter as the No. 10 seed and are hosting for the second year in a row in their 22nd appearance in the NCAA Championship.
They welcome first round foe Austin Peay State, along with Samford and Harvard.
