STARKVILLE, Miss. – A pair of Mississippi State volleyball matches have been included in the Southeastern Conference’s 18-match television schedule this fall.

MSU’s match at Auburn on Nov. 3 will be televised on CSS at 3 p.m. CT. The match will also be available via ESPN3 and was originally slated for a 1:30 p.m. start.

The Bulldogs return home for their Wednesday night showdown against Ole Miss on Nov. 6 that will be broadcast by ESPNU at 7 p.m. The last time MSU met the Rebels in a televised match the Bulldogs claimed a 3-2 victory on Oct. 2, 2011. The match will also be available via WatchESPN.

“The opportunity to play on TV is a great experience for our players and exposure for recruiting,” fifth-year MSU coach Jenny Hazelwood said. “To have our home match with our in-state rival broadcast on ESPNU is a fantastic time for our fans and student body to show what makes Mississippi State such a great place. It will be a lot of fun to be in Newell-Grissom that night.”

State’s 39th season of volleyball opens Aug. 30 and 31 with the Maroon Classic. The Bulldogs will play at 1 and 7 p.m. each day in the Newell-Grissom Building.
