We've seen Mississippi State baseball pull off some impossible-looking wins in recent history (think the eighth-inning comeback against Virginia that ended in a 6-5 Bulldogs win).

But that wasn't enough on Friday evening when the Bulldogs tied up the game in the eighth inning against Texas, only for Texas to score three more runs in the ninth inning and snag an 8-5 victory.

MSU has just one more shot to get it right against Texas when the two programs face each other on Saturday night.

The winner will go on to a three-game championship series against the Vanderbilt Commodores that starts on Monday, June 28.
