Mississippi State's baseball team learned late Monday evening that the Diamond Dogs will host Clemson in an NCAA Super Regional this weekend at Dudy Noble Field.
The three-game series will be played this Friday, Saturday and Sunday with the winner advancing to the 2007 College World Series in Omaha.
MSU will be hosting a Super Regional for the first time since the NCAA adopted the current national championship structure in 1999. It's the third Super Regional State has advanced since that time.
Overall, the Bulldogs will be making their fifth consecutive NCAA tournament appearance, the 11th in the past 12 seasons and their 24th since the NCAA adopted its regional tournament format in the mid-1970's.
