BATON ROUGE, La. -- Jake Mangum had three hits to lead six players with multiple hits Sunday, but the No. 7 Mississippi State baseball team lost to No. 5 LSU 11-8 on Sunday in Game 3 of the three-game Southeastern Conference weekend series at Alex Box Stadium.
BATON ROUGE, La. - Junior right-hander Austin Sexton stood tallest in a dynamic Southeastern Conference pitcher's duel Saturday night.
STARKVILLE -- Dakota Hudson and Austin Sexton aren't worried.
STARKVILLE -- Disgusted and downtrodden, the Mississippi State women's tennis team needed a boost.
MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- The No. 15 Ole Miss baseball team used three home runs and a strong pitching performance from freshman starting pitcher James McArthur in a 7-0 victory against Memphis on Tuesday evening at AutoZone Park.
STARKVILLE -- Although Cody Brown doesn't spend much time in Biloxi anymore, he knows how important baseball is to the city. Located on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, Biloxi has a lot to offer between water sports and casinos. Like many towns in Mississippi, high school football also is an important tradition, but baseball was pushed to the forefront last summer when the Biloxi Shuckers, the Double-A affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers, played their first season in Brown's hometown. It was a welcome sight for Brown and Biloxi.
STARKVILLE -- Good pitching and near-perfect defense is a good formula to win close games. The Mississippi State softball team used a complete-game shutout from Alexis Silkwood to take a 4-0 victory against Southern Mississippi on Tuesday night at Nusz Park.
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- For the third-straight year, the Alabama football team's quarterback competition will carry into preseason camp. Returnees Cooper Bateman, Blake Barnett, and David Cornwell and freshman mid-year enrollee Jalen Hurts don't appear to have much separation in the battle to start. All struggled to get the ball into the end zone Saturday in the team's spring-ending A-Day scrimmage for the defending national champions. But they did play against what typically is one of the nation's top defenses.
STARKVILLE -- The question of who will be the Mississippi State football team's next quarterback remains unanswered. With Dak Prescott graduating and getting ready for the NFL draft, four players had a chance in spring practice to make an impression on coach Dan Mullen and an opportunity to win the job. But after a month of practice and the team's Maroon and White Spring game on Saturday, Mullen didn't name a starter or give any inclination there is a leader.
BOSTON -- Mississippi State football coach Dan Mullen finished the Boston Marathon with a time of 4 hours, 28 minutes, 35 seconds on Monday.
STARKVILLE -- The No. 11 LSU softball team used an eight-run fifth inning to beat Mississippi State 12-1 in five innings Sunday on Super Bulldog Weekend at Nusz Park. The victory helped the Tigers (32-13, 7-11 Southeastern Conference) win the three-game weekend series. A 5-2 victory in 12 innings late Saturday night gave LSU its first win of the weekend.
STARKVILLE -- The Mississippi State baseball team saw this weekend how quickly things can go sideways. After taking two out of three from then No. 1-Florida last week in Gainesville, Florida, No. 2 MSU couldn't build on the momentum and suffered its third-straight loss to No. 4 Texas A&M, 10-4 on Sunday before a crowd of 8,786 at Dudy Noble Field. The three-game series, which was a part of Super Bulldog Weekend, drew 33,896 fans. It was the largest three-game series crowd since the 2014 Super Bulldog Weekend.
STARKVILLE -- Vann Stuedeman won't soon forget this loss.
STARKVILLE -- Nothing has come easy for the Mississippi State baseball pitchers this weekend.
STARKVILLE -- You wouldn't know it by looking at him, but Malik Dear is a wide receiver.
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- For the third straight year, Alabama's quarterback competition will carry over into preseason camp.
STARKVILLE -- Junior wide receiver Fred Brown is no longer a student at Mississippi State, a football spokesperson confirmed Thursday. The Clarion-Ledger first reported Brown violated the MSU honor code, but the spokesperson didn't confirm the report.
STARKVILLE -- Ryan Rigby didn't need two years at a junior college to get to the next level. Going from Kosciusko High School to East Mississippi Community College, the right-hander found a niche as a sidearm pitcher. He attracted the attention of several Division I and Southeastern Conference schools and then picked Mississippi State. Rigby has delivered on that potential and has emerged as a key member of No. 2 MSU's bullpen. The sophomore is 4-1 with a 1.23 ERA, second lowest on the team. He has allowed four runs (three earned) on 15 hits, and has struck out 23 and walked five.
STARKVILLE -- Justin Senior has grown comfortable at right tackle. After starting all 14 games at that position in 2014, Senior started 12 of 13 games there last season. But this spring Mississippi State offensive line coach John Hevesy asked the rising senior to practice at left tackle because he believed it would help the team and Senior.
STARKVILLE -- John Cohen is seeing a workmanlike attitude from his team. The Mississippi State baseball coach has been impressed with how the Bulldogs have handled the rigors of the Southeastern Conference and midweek games the last few weeks. MSU has taken series from SEC foes Vanderbilt, Georgia, Ole Miss, and then-No. 1 Florida. In that time, the Bulldogs are 3-0 in midweek games. No. 2 MSU exhibited that workmanlike attitude Wednesday night in an 11-1 victory against Memphis at Dudy Noble Field. The victory helped MSU (24-9-1) matched last season's win total.
