Pregame song(s): Should’ve Been a Cowboy by Toby Keith No particular reason for this song. It was playing over the PA when I was deciding what song to use, so I thought ‘hey what the hell, I like this song, why not.’ I hope you enjoy.

One big thing to watch: With a win, MSU moves on to the College World Series in Omaha, Neb. With a loss, the Bulldogs and Cavaliers will play again on Monday in a winner take all game. Also watch for Adam Frazier. The MSU junior shortstop was 6-6 Saturday. Look to see if he can continue his hot offensive start to the Super Regional.
