NCAA Baseball Super Regional: Texas Longhorns Vs. Arizona State Sun Devils, Game 2

The Texas Longhorns have their backs against the wall in the NCAA Baseball Super Regionals. The Longhorns lost last night to the Arizona State Sun Devils 3-1 in the first game of their best-of-three series, giving Arizona State a 1-0 series lead.

Now on Saturday, the Longhorns find themselves in a do-or-die situation. The host Longhorns have to win, otherwise they'll be eliminated - and they'll have to do it without ace Taylor Jungmann on the mound, since Jungmann started last night's game.

The Longhorns have found themselves in a do-or-die position already in the NCAA Baseball tournament, as they had to win out last weekend in the regionals - and they did just that.

Texas, though, will need a good if not great start from Cole Green. The Longhorns' bats will also have to show up as well, as scoring just one run rarely wins ball games. 

First pitch is scheduled for 6 p.m. CDT. Televised coverage can be found on ESPN.
