Rebs Defeat Bruins

Ole Miss picked up game three today to win the UCLA series by defeating the Bruins 2 out of the 3 games this weekend. As stated earlier I was not in Oxford this weekend, but I understand their was a very controversial call to end game 2 yesterday. Would love to hear comments.

(SID Report)
