The Bulldogs improved 37-41-1 and 18-9 league with its seventh straight league win, while Auburn Tigers  fell to 20-30 and 18-9. The Mississippi Bulldogs still remain on the heels of Texas A&M for the Western Division lead.

“We have a lot of goals we haven’t accomplished yet.” Bulldogs head coach John Cohen said. “Our kids feel it. They are completing very well. They want to complete for an SEC championship. The key on Sunday is throwing strikes. We were not as good there as we wanted to but we were good enough,” added Cohen.

“The biggest thing is scoring first, especially if you have already won the first two. The other team can get in that situation. Throwing strikes and scoring early were really big for our team,” Cohen added.
