Zac Houston of Poplarville has posted a 2-0 record with a 2.00 ERA with 23 strikeouts in 18 innings pitched.

Louisiana-Monroe enters the Mississippi State game with a 15-21 record.  The Bulldogs lead the all-time series with 25 wins and 7 losses.  The Warhawks defeated Mississippi State 7-1 in 2009.
