Starkville Super Regional: Mississippi State vs. Notre Dame
As far as first impressions go, it doesn’t get much better than Mississippi State Head Baseball Coach Chris Lemonis in the post-season having started his run at MSU with nine straight wins in NCAA Regional and Super Regional Games dating back to 2019.
But that record now stands at 9-1 after dropping game two of the Starkville Super Regional to Notre Dame on Sunday.
Setting up this winner-take-all game three with a trip to Omaha on the line, Bulldogs trying to make it three College World Series appearances in a row.
Mississippi State wins this one 11-7. Diamond Dawgs turned OmaDawgs, 12th College World Series appearance for MSU.
How about the attendance? 40,140 fans at Dudy Noble Field this weekend, the largest three-game series crowd in NCAA history.
Here’s your field of eight teams remaining, six of them are national seeds, so mostly chalk with a couple upsets as we start with two-seed Texas, three-seed Tennessee, four-seed Vanderbilt, and five-seed Arizona.
Moving on to the Bulldogs, they’re the seven-seed, making it three SEC teams, followed by nine-seed Stanford and then a couple of Cinderella’s NC State Wolfpack and the Virginia Cavaliers.
