OMAHA, NE (Mississippi News Now) -

Mississippi State entered the College World Series with 10 wins in their final at-bat. Luke Alexander made it 11 Saturday night.

His walkoff knock in the bottom of the 9th drove home the only run of the ballgame. Hunter Stovall touched home as the Bulldogs beat Washington 1-0. Alexander was 3 for 4 in the victory along with Stovall.

Ethan Small was stellar on the bump. He struck out five in 7 shutout innings, including a big K in the 6th with a Husky on 3rd. JP France, Zach Neff, and Cole Gordon combined to allow 2 hits in relief.

The Bulldog defense was also critical to the CWS win. MSU turned a double play in the 3rd to keep UW off the scoreboard

Mississippi State will face North Carolina Monday night in the winner's bracket. You can watch the Bulldogs postgame press conference below.
