Some patchy fog can't be ruled out.

Monday: some scattered showers and a few storms can't be ruled out.

Temperatures climb back into the low 80s before a cold front pushes showers and storms out to the east.

Tuesday - friday: we've been watching for awhile, but it seems that amazingly quiet and beautiful weather is coming!

It might be one last hurrah from spring as all the tropical summertime moisture is shoved back to the south.

Behind the front, expect it was win or go home for the ole miss rebels this afternoon game one in the fayetteville super regional definitely not going as planned... arkansas had themselves a day delivering an 11-2 victory over the rebels and now it was up to the rebels to respond back to baum-walker stadium we go..

Game 2 between ole miss and arkansas.

Omaha on the line for ole miss...good thing doug nikhazy was the starting pitcher 1 on, 2 out for dominic fletcher who crushes one over the right field wall.

2 run homerun for fletcher and this time around it's arkansas who gets ahead early.

Bottom 1st, no outs.

Connor noland pitching.

Thomas dillard hits one to center.

Fletcer dives for it but can't make the catch.

Dillard gets on with a single.

Same inning, 2 on for cole zabowski who absolutely crushes one across the street out the park for a 3 run homerun!!

Ole miss takes a 3-2 lead.

Bottom 2nd, cooper johnson at bat.

He takes one to opposite that keeps on going and going and is gone for a solo hr!!

Still in the 2nd, 1 out.

Bases loaded.

Kole ramage pitching to tyler keenan who smokes one to center field that'll drop.

Wave em all around coach.

Bases clearing triple for keenan.

Rebs take a 7-2 lead.

Fast forward, top 5th.

Arkansas down 8- 5 threatening with 2 on base.

Doug nikhazy fast ball inside strikes him out and gets ole miss out of the jam.

Nikhazy broke the record for freshman career strikeouts in this game bottom 6th, 1 out, rebs up 8-5.

Tyler keenan absolutely tattoos one to the apartment complex across the street!!

That's solo homerun for keenan and his 4th rbi of the day.

Rebs take a 9-5 lead and continue to pour it on the razorbacks.

And with omaha on their minds...the rebels drop 13 runs on arkansas, they take the win 13-5 forcing a game three that will determine who is headed to the college world series chris bolton: now when i drove across the mississippi river to arkansas, this was the team i'd imagine i would see as ole miss beat arkansas 13 to 5 in game 2.

Now unlike in game 1 the bats were here!

They were in full effect.

I guess ole miss hit up amazon prime and said instead of 2 night shipping we need the bats here overnight and that's what happened.

Cole zabowski he had a big 3 run shot!

Cooper johnson hit one opposite field and tyler keenan also got in the mix as well.

Now doug nikhazy didn't have his normal game.

He did get dinged up a little bit.

Gave up 10 hits gave up 5 earned runs but the bats were here.

He had run support.

That's all that mattered.

Then when nikhazy came out, houston roth come in the game.

He pitched 4 scoreless innings.

It's just amazing to see the work this ole miss team does when their backs are against the wall and they have to perform.

Mike bianco: "they don't loo nervous.

They look...if you were in the dugout, they look like a team that's won 4, 5 games in a row..and in the most pressure packed parts of the game, they do play loose and with a lot of confidence.

Cole zabowski: i think it come from the challenges that we face throughout the season.

It just puts us when we get in that situation we're able to handle it because we've been through it and have experience there.

Doug nikhazy: "we don't kno what tomorrow's going to bring and we have to make sure that we do our jobs today.

We can't look past today.

And that's kind of what's kept us on our toes.

I think we were never really comfortable but not to say we weren't comfortable but we weren't content with what was going on and focused on making sure we poured it on them."

3 o'clock.

We'll see if ole miss can win yet another elimination game as they are 5- 0 in their last 5 elimination games.

Gunnar hoglund, another freshman for the rebs, will be on the mound.

You already had one freshman get a win.

We'll see if hoglund can finish it up for the rebs.
