College World Series 2013: X-Factors in Game 2 of Mississippi State vs. UCLA

Published by on June 25, 2013

The UCLA Bruins are one win away from their first NCAA baseball championship, and their pitching will be the biggest X-factor in Game 2 of the College World Series against the Mississippi State Bulldogs on Tuesday night in Omaha, Neb.

UCLA beat Mississippi State 3-1 in Game 1 on Monday (recap courtesy of the Los Angeles Times). The Bruins had great pitching yet again and are now one win away from making history.

The Bruins (48-17) have won 10 straight games, including all nine postseason games. Mississippi State (51-19) lost for only the second time in 10 games. The good news for Bulldogs fans is that their team hasn't lost back-to-back games since early May.

All of the pressure is on Mississippi State right now. This is a team that knocked off Oregon State twice in the postseason, and the players better come ready to play.

Let's take a look at what the biggest X-factor for each team will be.
