Ole Miss Baseball Claims First National Title In School History

With a two-win sweep of the Oklahoma Sooners in the 2022 MCWS final, the Ole Miss Rebels have earned their first-ever Division I NCAA college baseball championship.

Back-to-back-to-back home runs. 

That’s how the University of Mississippi Rebels baseball team (50-23) gave themselves a comfortable lead in the top of the eighth inning – on their way to a 10-3 Game #1 victory over the Oklahoma Sooners. Rebels star first-baseman Tim Elko had four hits (including a solo shot in the third) in a game that was never really in doubt. 

But Sunday’s Game #2 in Omaha was much more competitive. The SEC West Ole Miss Rebels finally ended the 0-0 deadlock in the bottom of the sixth inning, only to see the Sooners jump back on top in the seventh to lead Game #2 by a score of 2-1 heading into the eighth. 

In the bottom of the 8th inning, the Rebels were able to regain the lead while adding an insurance run on a wild pitch to go up 4-2, and that’s how Game #2 ended – with the Ole Miss Rebels baseball team completing an unbelievable championship run after entering the postseason as an unseeded, “last four in” team. 

For the Tennessee Volunteers (who were ranked #1 in the country for most of the 2022 regular season), the lesson of “peaking at the right time” was learned through a gut-wrenching Super Regional loss against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. 

For Tennessee sports bettors who, entering the postseason, picked the underdog Rebels to win their first NCAA Division I baseball championship, Ole Miss’ 10-1 run after dropping the first round game against Vanderbilt in the SEC Tournament has resulted in a rewarding payday.
