Mississippi State clinched its ninth appearance in the College World Series with a dramatic 6-5 win over No. 6 national seed Virginia Monday afternoon at Davenport Field to clinch the Charlottesville Super Regional.
With the victory, the Bulldogs swept the Super Regional best-of-three series and won its second-ever Super Regional in five career tries. MSU advances to the College World Series for the first time since 2007 and will play for a first-time in the new CWS home, T.D. Ameritrade Stadium.
MSU will face either Kansas State or Oregon State in an opening-round of the eight-team, double-elimination CWS. The Bulldogs will play either Saturday or Sunday. An official game day, game time and television assignment is expected from the NCAA later Monday.
