OXFORD, Miss. - Inclement weather that hit the Oxford area in the middle of the first inning forced the suspension of Friday's series-opening game between No. 20 Ole Miss (33-16, 12-12 SEC) and No. 13 Mississippi State (36-13, 13-11 SEC).
Following a top of the first that saw Rebel starter Bobby Wahl strikeout the side around a fielding error at short, the rains came down with Ole Miss coming to the plate and forcing the suspension of the contest.
The game will resume at 3 p.m. on Saturday afternoon at Swayze Field, with game two of the series being played 40 minutes following the conclusion of game one.
Fans will be admitted to the games with Friday or Saturday tickets in the grandstand. Friday's ticket will be good for the seats in game one, if someone shows up for game two and has tickets for a seat, fans are asked to move to a general admission area out of respect for the fan who has tickets for that seat in game two.
Diamond Club members are asked to present their ticket for Saturday's game to gain admission. Those with tickets for Friday's game are asked to check in with the ticket office and members of the Ole Miss ticket office staff will work to make accommodations for those fans.
