WATCH: #1 Ole Miss drops first series in over one calendar year, falls to UCF

In 8 hours of baseball at Swayze Field, the Rebels had their first walk-off win of the season courtesy of captain Tim Elko. However, that success could not be replicated in the series-deciding third game as Ole Miss split Saturday’s doubleheader with a 6-5 win and 7-2 loss to the UCF Knights.

#1 Ole Miss fell to 5-2 on the season, suffering its first series defeat since the 2019 NCAA Fayetteville Super Regional. Ole Miss head baseball coach Mike Bianco, pitcher Gunnar Hoglund, and 2B Justin Bench all talked about the series loss after the game. Video is courtesy of Ole Miss Sports Productions.
