GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Nick Vickerson hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth Saturday to give Mississippi State a 4-3 victory over Florida, tying their best-of-three Super Regional series at McKethan Stadium.
Jarrod Parks led off the ninth with a single off Florida's Nick Maronde, and Vickerson hit the first pitch he saw from reliever Steven Rodriguez over the fence in left-center field.
The Gators and Bulldogs will play Sunday for a spot in the College World Series.
Florida (49-17) built a 2-0 lead on Nolan Fontana's sacrifice fly in the third and Josh Adams' solo homer in the sixth, and Mississippi State (38-24) tied the game in the seventh on RBI singles by Cody Freeman and Brent Brownlee.
The Gators broke the tie with a run in the eighth on Tyler Thompson's triple to center.
