With a 4-2 win over the University of Oklahoma, the University of Mississippi took home the College World Series trophy on Sunday, June 26. After weeks of play between 64 of the best college baseball teams in the United States, the stones are finally set. The Ole Miss Rebels are the college national champions.

Ole Miss was doubted as a team from the start. They were not ranked in the top 25 at the end of the regular season. They were also the last seed of the eight teams to reach Omaha. However, the Rebels defied all odds during the College World Series tournament, going 10-1 and sweeping Oklahoma to win the national title.

The Rebels made history with this victory. It is the program's first title ever since their inception back in 1893. Although Ole Miss has been one of the most competitive teams in college baseball throughout recent years, they have always fellen short of the championship until this year.

Ole Miss defeated Oklahoma with ease. The Rebels handily beat the Sooners with a score of 10-3 in Game 1, thanks to a four-run eighth inning by Ole Miss. During this game, their offense hit back-to-back-to-back home runs, something that has not been accomplished in the College World Series in 24 years.

Since Ole Miss is a fan favorite throughout college baseball, many fans were extremely happy that the Rebels won their first national title. The fans took to Twitter and had only positives to say about the underdog team.
