STARKVILLE, Miss. - Following convincing performances in New York and South Bend, Ind., last weekend, Mississippi State indoor track and field splits its talents again this weekend at the Samford Multi and Invitational in Birmingham and in Fayetteville at the Tyson Invitational.

Between the two meets, MSU will compete against athletes from every SEC school with the exception of Ole Miss and Tennessee.

The Maroon and White seek to maintain success on the season, after excelling at both meets last weekend, posting seven Top 10 finishes between two days.

Freshman Brandon McBride continues to lead the way for the Bulldogs, racing an outstanding time in the 800-meter run at Notre Dame's Meyo Invitational. His time of 1:47.74 seconds set a Canadian Junior National Record and ranked as the second-best time in the country.

MSU hits the road boasting the No. 12 men's indoor team in the nation and has its sights set on continuing to qualify Bulldogs for nationals. The team hopes of adding even more accomplishments to its slate as meets conclude on Saturday evening.

Action will begin in Birmingham on Friday at 2 p.m. and continue Saturday morning at 9:30, while the Tyson Invitational will kick off tomorrow at noon and resume action Saturday at 1 p.m. Bulldogs in The Magic City will return to the Birmingham CrossPlex for competition, and those in Arkansas will lace up at the Razorbacks' Randal Tyson Track Center.

After this weekend's competition, Mississippi State returns to action on Feb. 15 at the LSU Twilight Invitational in Baton Rouge.
