by -

Clemson, SC--Clemson advanced to the Super Regional for the seventh time in the nine-year history of the Super Regional format with a
15-3 victory over Coastal Carolina at Myrtle Beach, SC on Monday afternoon. Clemson had a 3-0 record in the Myrtle Beach Regional, the third straight year Clemson has advanced to a Super Regional with a perfect regional record.

Mississippi State advanced to the Super Regional with a victory over Stetson and a pair of wins over host school and national
#6 seed Florida State.

This will be the second consecutive year Clemson has faced Mississippi State in the NCAA Tournament. Last year, Clemson downed the Bulldogs 8-6 in the third game of the Clemson regional, a victory that sent Clemson to the Super Regional before advancing to the College World Series.

Clemson has a 4-0 record against Mississippi State over the years in the NCAA Tournament and an 8-3 advantage overall in a series that dates to 1968. Clemson downed the Bulldogs twice in the 2000 Super Regional at Clemson and once in the 1991 regional in Orono, ME.

The Bulldogs have a 36-20 overall record, while the Tigers are 41-21. Both schools had a 3-0 record in their respective NCAA regional tournaments. Clemson had an 18-12 mark in the ACC during the regular season, and a 2-1 record in the ACC Tournament, while Mississippi State had a 15-13 record in the SEC regular season, and
an 0-2 mark in the SEC Tournament. On the Warren Nolan.com RPI as
of Monday morning, June 4, Clemson was 15th heading into the Coastal Carolina game, while Mississippi State was 21st after winning the Tallahassee Regional.

Clemson has won seven of its last 10 games entering the Super Regional, including six in a row over top 25 teams. Mississippi State is 4-6 in its last 10 games.

MSU will be hosting an NCAA Super Regional for the first time since the NCAA adopted the current national championship structure in 1999. It is the third Super Regional State has advanced to since that time (2000-Clemson, S.C.; 2001-Fullerton, Calif.). Overall, the Bulldogs are making their fifth consecutive NCAA tournament appearance in 2007 - the 11th in the past 12 seasons and their 24th since the NCAA adopted its regional tournament format in the mid-1970s.
