Mississippi State will have at least 11 of its Southeastern Conference baseball games televised this season.

The SEC office released its list of TV games and have selected the Diamond Dogs to air during eight different series during the conference slate. Some MSU’s matchups against Georgia, Vanderbilt, LSU, Ole Miss, Texas A&M, Auburn, Tennessee and Alabama series will be shown.

The Bulldogs will appear on CSS and FSN four times while ESPNU will carry three games.

In order to accommodate the new TV schedule, State’s home series with Texas A&M will be bumped up a day and held April 24-26. The Thursday night game against the Aggies will be aired on ESPNU at 6:30 p.m. and the Saturday finale will be shown on FSN at 2:15 p.m.

The Bulldogs initial televised SEC action comes March 15 at Georgia at 11 a.m. on FSN. Additionally, the Super Bulldog Weekend Saturday game against Ole Miss on April 12 will be aired at 3 p.m. also on FSN.

State is scheduled to have the second most TV appearances in the regular season trailing LSU by two games (LSU 13, Mississippi State 11, Florida 9, Ole Miss 9, Vanderbilt 9, Auburn 8, South Carolina 8, Tennessee 8, Alabama 7, Arkansas 6, Georgia 6, Kentucky 6, Texas A&M 6, Missouri 4).

I have covered Mississippi State in some capacity since 2004 and joined the Daily Journal staff in 2013. I enjoy short walks on the beach, performing concerts in my car and watching professional wrestling.
