Mississippi State defeated Clemson 8-5 on Saturday, sending the Bulldogs to the College World Series for the first time since 1998. An NCAA super regional-record crowd of 13,715 saw the Bulldogs complete a sweep of the Tigers in the best-of-three series, proving that Mississippi's cow college is better than South Carolina's cow college. The Bulldogs became the first team to advance to the CWS. The Bulldogs will play the winner of the South Carolina-North Carolina super regional on Friday.
Meanwhile, Ole Miss began its best-of-three series at Arizona State on Saturday night. Most of you couldn't see the game because it was on ESPNU. But most of you with cable can watch Sunday's Game 2 (6 p.m., ESPN2/97.3 FM).
