Senior catcher Autumn Gillespie currently leads the team at the plate with a .286 average with three runs on six hits and two RBIs. 

Mississippi Valley State (1-3) rolls into town after dropping its last three games in a tournament at the Southern Miss Tournament in Hattiesburg. MVSU defeated Saint Louis University 8-4 to open the season.

Ole Miss and MVSU are meeting on the diamond for the 13th time between the two programs. The Rebels hold a 10-2 advantage in the series. In 2017, the Rebels defeated Mississippi Valley State 8-0 in five innings.

Admission to the softball game is free of charge.
