All but one SEC team have midweeks on Tuesday and Wednesday this week. They’ll be hoping to avoid any setbacks and head into the weekend with some wins under their belts.
Tuesday – March 3
Tuesday is a loaded schedule with 12 teams facing off. Two teams will be on the road with South Carolina traveling to Furman and Florida going to FAU.
Cincinnati (4-6) @ Kentucky (5-6), 5pm ET SECN+
Cincinnati started the season 0-6 off to a terrible start. They got things going over the weekend with a four-game sweep over Oakland.
Kentucky looked to be finding their stride after getting swept by TCU to start the season. They strung together five wins in a row before getting swept at home by UNC-Wilmington. This is a game they’d really like to have.
South Carolina (7-4) @ Furman (5-6), 7pm ET
South Carolina is off to a rocky start in a season that high hopes. They’ve won just one of their three series so far this season. Road games have been a battle for the Gamecocks and the SEC as a whole. They’ll need to buckle down and take Furman seriously and get a midweek win.
Samford (10-1) @ No.19 Auburn (10-3), 8pm ET SECN+
Samford is no joke in the midweek for Auburn as they come in with 10 wins already on the season. They’re on a seven-game winning streak and have lost just one game this season – a midweek at Belmont.
Auburn has righted the ship since the surprising sweep at home to the hands of UCF. They’ve won five in a row behind some solid hitting that scored six or more runs in each of the five wins.
SE Louisiana (5-6) @ No.21 LSU (7-5), 8:30pm ET SECN+
LSU hosts an easy opponent and should be able to get the win. They struggled over the weekend going 1-2 and have dropped all the way to 7-5 and No.21 in the rankings. They’ve already lost one midweek game this season and want to avoid an early second loss.
Memphis (8-3) @ No.9 Ole Miss (10-1), 8:30pm ET SECN+
Memphis is as hot as they’ve been all season. They went 1-3 to start the season but have strung together a nice seven-game winning streak. They’re known to give their in-state rival some troubles.
Ole Miss had another excellent weekend, sweeping the Keith LeClair Classic in Greenville. They’ll hope to avoid a setback and keep the 10-game winning streak going.
Texas A&M CC (5-6) @ Texas A&M (10-3), 8:30pm ET SECN+
Texas A&M CC should be a winnable game but they have won four of their last five. They’ve already knocked off one SEC opponent this season against Missouri. Texas A&M has fallen out of the rankings after an 0-3 weekend. They need to get back in the win column Tuesday night.
Wednesday – March 4
Murray State (7-5) @ Kentucky (5-5), 5pm ET SECN+
Just like their Tuesday game Kentucky needs this win. These two-midweek games are very important for Kentucky. They’ve got one more weekend before heading into SEC play to try and get some wins. The window for mistakes is closed already for the Wildcats.
No.18 Mississippi State (7-4) @ Southern Mississippi (9-3), 8pm
Mississippi State lost the series to Long Beach State over the weekend as well as losing their midweek to a then winless Texas Southern team. Not only does this win set them back on the right path but it can be a nice RPI builder for the resume.
Southern Miss has a respectable 9-3 record and have lost one game to an SEC team earlier in the season against Ole Miss. They’ll come to play the in-state rival hard and give the Bulldogs a warm welcome to Hattiesburg.
