Mississippi State's Jake Mangum has been around long enough to know that any athletic contest between the Bulldogs and Ole Miss Rebels is more important than any other.
When positioning for NCAA regionals and super regionals are at stake, then it takes the situation to another level.
MSU has made the trip to Oxford to begin a three-game series against Ole Miss. As of late Thursday night, the game times were set for 6:30 p.m. Friday, 6 p.m. Saturday and noon Sunday. Weather could alter that schedule throughout the weekend.
For a preview on the series, see Friday's Starkville Daily News.
