Auburn, Ala.--The Auburn Tigers (22-27, 8-16) square off against No. 3 Mississippi State (34-14-1, 15-9) in a three-game series this weekend at Plainsman Park. It will be a big weekend for both teams as well as Coach Butch Thompson after he came to Auburn from Starkville. Facing off against a team he's very familiar with will be a difficult thing for Thompson, but he said in the end the ultimate goal is winning the series and keeping the Tigers in the hunt for the SEC Tournament.
Game times for the weekend series are set for 6 p.m. on Friday, 3:30 p.m. on Saturday and 1 p.m. on Sunday. Saturday's game can be seen on the SEC Network.
