Things will seem very familiar for Southern Miss this weekend in the NCAA regionals.
The Golden Eagles travel to Oxford for the second time in the past three years and will take on Troy, the team that ousted it from last year's postseason.
Also in the first round Friday in Oxford, Ole Miss will play Southland Conference champion Sam Houston State.
Mississippi State will travel to the regional hosted by Florida State in Tallahassee. The Bulldogs open with Stetson on Friday.
Ole Miss and Mississippi State are among five Southeastern Conference schools invited to play in the postseason.
The winners of the 16 double-elimination regionals move on to a super regional the following weekend.
It's the fifth straight postseason appearance for all three Mississippi schools.
The Rebels advanced and hosted super regionals the last two seasons, but lost to Miami and Texas.
