Postgame Presser: Ole Miss defeats Clemson, 6-1, to advance to Regional Championship

OXFORD, Miss. — No. 1 seed Ole Miss defeated No. 3 seed Clemson, 6-1, Saturday to advance to the NCAA Oxford Regional Championship game. Pitcher Doug Nikhazy almost notched a perfect game en route to allowing just one run to nine strikeouts.

Though it was the Tigers who entered the game with 81 home runs — good enough for 8th in the nation — it was the Rebels who hit the long ball, with Cooper Johnson, Cole Zabowski, and Kevin Graham each hitting a home run at Swayze.

Following the victory, head coach Mike Bianco, Nikhazy, Johnson and Zabowski met with the media. (Video credit: Chris Muller, The Rebel Walk)

The Rebels will face the winner of Jacksonville State vs. Clemson. First pitch for Ole Miss is set for 8:00 p.m. (CT).
