the teams seem to be fairly well matched in the hitting and pitching categories. Hogs with more power, but not so much in conference play. Ms State can be beaten at home and the hogs can win on the road. Ms St has not had as tough a schedule as the hogs, and have a rougher schedule from here on out. The same is true for Ole Miss and Kentucky who all are also right above the hogs with a 6-9 record.
If the hogs can take 2 0f 3 this weekend they have a good chance of finishing above all three of them in the conference standing.
