STARKVILLE, Miss. — With rain expected for much of the day in Starkville, LSU and Mississippi State could have a hard time fitting in the final game of the regular season. 

One thing that will apparently not be an issue is a travel curfew. 

An LSU spokesman, when asked if there was a travel curfew in place for the game that is set to begin at 3:30, responded in a text message "none." 

LSU traveled to Starkville by bus. Roughly an hour before the scheudled first pitch, the tarp was still covering the infield at Dudy Noble Field. 

Several scenarios were still in play in the hours before the scheduled first pitch. 

Kentucky and Florida were playing their series finale in Gainesville, with the Tigers keeping a watchful eye. 

A Kentucky win would mean the worst LSU could do was finish in a three-way tie for the Southeastern Conference title. If both Kentucky and LSU win Saturday, LSU would finish as the outright champion. 

A Florida win would mean the best LSU could do is finish in a tie for the SEC championship. A Florida win coupled with an LSU loss would result in Florida as the SEC champion, with LSU finishing No. 2. 

If LSU's game is rained out in Starkville, the Tigers would win the SEC with a Kentucky win (based on win percentage), and would finish No. 2 in the SEC with a Florida win.
