OMAHA, Nebraska — Texas puts redshirt-freshman All-America left-hander Pet Hansen on the mound to start the elimination game against Virginia. It has been fours days since Hansen pitched when Texas fell to Mississippi State 2-1.

Hansen starts the game with 85-1/3 innings pitched, 74 strikeouts, a career high of 13 against Fairfield in the NCAA Austin Regionals, and an 1.79 earned run average.

Tonight's game means one team goes home while the other team will have to face Mississippi State again and beat them twice to reach the finals of the College World Series.
