Pregame song(s): The Most Beautiful Girl by Charlie Rich – Mount St. Mary’s alumnus Rory Michael Bourke wrote this song. Bourke also wrote You Look so Good in Love as made famous by George Strait. Bourke also collaborated on Little Red Rodeo as made famous by Collin Raye. I hope you enjoy.
One big thing to watch: MSU has been shaky in the last week. They won just two games in five tries. The Bulldogs play six games this week and they look to start it the marathon off with a victory.
