(WMC) - It took a little longer than expected, but Vanderbilt finally punched it's ticket to the College World Series final.
The Commodores knocked off Texas in the bottom of the 10th inning 4-3 to earn their first ever trip to the series final.
Tyler Campbell came through with the bases-loaded infield single and beat out the throw to first to seal the victory for Vanderbilt.
Campbell was in his second game filling in for third baseman Xavier Turner, who was ruled ineligible Friday for a violation of NCAA rules.
With the win, Vanderbilt gives the SEC a team in the CWS finals for the seventh straight year.
Vandy will face Virginia, which eliminated Ole Miss Saturday, 4-1.
The first game of the best of three series is Monday night at 7 o'clock in Omaha.
