    Texas defeated Boston College in an NCAA Regional game that lasted 7 hours 3 minutes - longest college game in history. Texas reliever Austin Wood came on in the 7th and pitched a no-hitter until the 18th, then went out in the 20th after allowing 2 hits. He threw 169 pitches. Texas being the visitors also put a lot of extra pressure on him. An epic performance to say the least.

    Some records from Saturday night’s Longhorn victory

    By Alan Trubow | Sunday, May 31, 2009, 01:38 PM

    The Longhorns’ 3-2 victory over Boston College in 25 innings Saturday night had a lot of special moments.

    Not only did it set the record for the longest baseball game in the history of the NCAA, but it also set a bunch of other records.

    Here’s a list of interesting tidbits from the game, which lasted 7 hours and 3 minutes.

    — Had Texas’ Austin Wood and Boston College’s Mike Belfiore, both relievers, started the game, the score would have been 0-0 in the 10th inning. Wood would have had a no-hitter going and Belfiore would have had a three-hitter going.

    — At one point in the game, the teams combined for 28 consecutive outs. It was a combined perfect game by the pitchers.

    — Texas introduced the first-ever (we believe) 21st-inning stretch

    — Both teams used all of their position players

    — There were 683 pitches thrown in the game

    —Texas stranded 24 men on base

    — Belfiore, Hamlet and Lawrence each played three positions

    — Texas had three runs on 20 hits

    — There were 11 walks in the game compared to 42 strikeouts

    — The 10 p.m. ET game at UC Irvine game started and finished before end of the game

    — The 25-inning game was the longest game in NCAA baseball history. The previous longest game was a 23-inning game played between Louisiana-Lafayette and McNeese State on March 27, 1971. ULL won the game 6-5.

    — The game also marked the longest NCAA postseason game in history. The previous longest game was a 19-inning contest between Clemson and Fordham at the NCAA Northeast Regional in New Britain, Conn. on May 26, 1988.

    — Texas and Boston College combined to set NCAA records with 42 strikeouts, 222 total chances, 69 assists, 192 plate appearances and 171 at-bats.

    — Texas’ 91 at-bats, 103 plate appearances, 115 total chances and 75 putouts set new NCAA records

    — Travis Tucker and Michal Torres set the NCAA single-game record for at-bats with 12

    — Texas first baseman Preston Clark’s 33 putouts against BC set a new NCAA record for most single-game putouts.

    — Texas had to reset the scoreboard twice to post the score by inning

    — It was 96 degrees at first pitch at 6:02 p.m. - The game finished at 78 degrees at 1:05 a.m.

    — Both teams received a standing ovation at the conclusion of the game

    I'd add a high end video card, as well. No reason to use the crappy onboard video with those specs. Probably upgrade the bat firmware, too.

    I don't know, I think if either team had upgraded to Offense 4.0 before the game, it wouldn't have lasted that long..

    yeah, but if you're going to upgrade the Offense to version 4.0 you also have to upgrade the defense to 4.0 too. Also, let's not forget about the "umpire is a bastard, and will screw your team over if he can" script that you need to disable. if you need help with that, just let us nerds know.

    Well, the score was 3-2, so I assumed both teams had Defense 4.0, but you have a very good point. You do have to be careful with that umpire script though, I've often seen it result in an ejection error.

    We can do this all day..lol.

    Florida State must have been using the new beta release of Offense because they beat OSU 37 to 6 ... they had 8 runs in the first inning.

    Or, they could have used that Umpire script you mentioned, and enabled the payoff hack.

    Do they 'mud' baseballs in college? How many balls did they go through in this game, and did the ump 'mud' enough or did they run out?

    Does that mean they had a 14th inning stretch?
