I know we have all grown tired of the “Rain Delay Danceoff’s” since the original came out a few years ago between UConn and South Florida but it isn’t everyday that we get to see the current Heisman Trophy winner involved like Saturday night between Florida State and Notre Dame. You can check out the video from the Tallahassee Democrat below. Continue reading
Long Beach State got a tremendous effort from a hometown kid, but was it enough against UCLA? Could Fullerton bounce back after a late-inning loss late last night? Could LMU and Northridge even their series after dropping Friday night’s matchup?

ECU had won 7 games in a row before losing to N.C. State during the week. Rice is coming off a weekend series loss to MTSU and mid-week loss to Texas. These teams are 2nd (Rice) and 4th (ECU) in the conference in pitching so expect this to be a tight, low-scoring series. Rice is still dominating the conference despite its recent series loss, while ECU could prove a lot by picking up a couple of wins this weekend. Continue reading
