LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - Ryan Wilson and Matt Plitt combined on a six-hitter and Louisiana-Lafayette beat Mississippi State 5-3 on Monday night to advance to the NCAA super regionals for the first time since its last and only College World Series appearance in 2000.

Wilson (6-0) allowed four hits and three runs and 6 2-3 innings and Plitt allowed only two hits over a scoreless final 2 1-3 innings for his fifth save for ULL (57-8).

Louisiana-Lafayette advances to play Mississippi, winner of the Oxford regional, at a best-of-three super regional in Lafayette.

Mississippi State (39-24) got to within a run with RBI singles by C.T. Bradford and Brett Pirtle to make it 4-3 in the seventh.

ULL added an insurance run in the ninth on Blake Trahan's RBI single.
