OMAHA, NE -The College World Series game between Virginia and Mississippi was suspended after a 93-minute lightning and rain delay at TD Ameritrade Park on Friday night, while Texas beat Vanderbilt 4-0 to set up a winner-take-all game between those two Saturday night.


The game between the Rebels and Cavaliers, tied 0-0, will resume Saturday at 2 p.m. CST with Virginia batting in the top of the second inning. The Cavaliers have runners on first and second base.

Virginia would advance to next week's best-of-three finals with a win. If Mississippi wins, the teams would play again Sunday.

Texas and Vanderbilt will play a second bracket final on Saturday at 7 p.m. following the Longhorns' 4-0 win on Friday.

Friday night's game originally was delayed because of lightning. Heavy rain moved in and forced the suspension of the game. More than an inch of rain fell in a half-hour at TD Ameritrade Park.
