Florida knocks out Nebraska in wild 15-inning WCWS game

Florida defeated Nebraska in a 15 inning marathon Saturday night in the Women's College World Series, knocking out the Cornhuskers in a game that lasted 5 hours and 20 minutes.

Florida took a 6-3 lead into the 7th (and, usually, final) inning but a series of strange plays helped Nebraska score three runs and tie it. Florida took the lead in the 10th but Nebraska again tied it with a solo homer to extend the contest.

The game ended in the 15th inning, well after 11pm local time. Michigan and Arizona State watched the final eight innings from beyond the outfield fence, as they were slated to play after the conclusion of Florida-Nebraska. The Wolverines knocked off the Sun Devils, 2-0.
