MSU, previously tabbed for an April 19 home appearance against Tennessee on ESPNU's Thursday night SEC Game of the Week package, will open and close the FOX/SportSouth SEC baseball television package. State's March 25 series-ending Sunday matchup against defending SEC West champion Arkansas and the Friday MSU-Kentucky game, both at Dudy Noble Field, will be televised on SportSouth. SportSouth will also broadcast the first two games of the State-Ole Miss rivalry April 27-28 in Starkville.
Comcast Sports Southeast (CSS) includes three Mississippi State games among its 20-game lineup of SEC baseball telecasts. The March 17 MSU-LSU matchup in Baton Rouge, La., will be televised as part of a unique SEC baseball Saturday TV tripleheader on CSS. Comcast will also televise the sixth annual State-Ole Miss Governor's Cup matchup April 17 at Trustmark Park in Pearl, Miss., as well as the April 29 MSU-Ole Miss series finale at Dudy Noble Field.
Both ESPNU and Comcast have also set aside late-season dates for wildcard games, May 11 (CSS) and May 19 (ESPNU).
Additional TV dates for games outside the SEC's package of games broadcast by television partners ESPN, FOX/SportSouth and Comcast, could also be announced.
