    Just took a 3-run lead in the top of the 12th against UNC in the final game of the Chapel Hill Regional. FAU scored 6 runs in the top of the 9th to actually take the lead. UNC put 2 back in the bottom of the 9th to send it to extras.

    #1 seed is about to go down.

    Go GATORS!

    Watchin it now. Probably the biggest win in FAU history, given the opponent. IF FAU holds on. Looking a little shaky, with 2 on and no out.

    Oregon about to lose also, barring a miraculous comeback.

    That pitcher looks gassed. But it doesn't seem like FAU has any better options. Bases loaded, nobody out, 3-run lead for FAU. Crowd has woken up.

    Bases loaded, 0 out, 11-10 now. Looks bad for FAU.

    Wow, UNC tied it up and did no more. 11-11 to the 13th.

    Not sure how much longer I can watch this, but I'd love to see the team celebrate when they get there.

    Ironically just like the Wcws, where UT scored 3 in extras then Okla came back with 3 in the bottom of the inning, then won it in the next.

    I'd bet on the heels doing the same at this point.

    Rice is one out away from advancing to a Super Regional. They started their closer and are having their Friday Night starter close this game out. You can't make this stuff up.

    UNC is bringing in a starter who threw 90 pitches yesterday. So much for protecting student athletes.

    Rice advances to the Super Regional. Will probably play at NC State.

    Strike 3. We're going to the bottom of the 13th. UNC has the top of the order coming up.

    Yea, that's usually Rice's practice also, unfortunately.

    On to the bottom of the inning still tied. I'll bet I know who the Gamecocks are rooting for.

    Oh, wow. The runner was safe by a half a step. Big break for FAU.

    they should be able to replay those, and they should also be very quick reviews.

    The umpires selected for these tournaments are supposed to be the best in the country.

    After a hit and a walk, the bases should be loaded with 0 outs.
