The spirit of the Mississippi State Bulldogs had been broken and all hope seemed lost.
It appeared that the three-run top of the 10th for the Ole Miss Rebels was going to be enough to send the Bulldogs to their second-straight loss and second-straight series loss.
However, No. 21 State scored four runs in the home half of the inning, including Gavin Collins' walk-off RBI single, to beat the No. 17 Rebels 6-5 in 10 innings Saturday afternoon. 
"We just kept fighting," MSU senior outfielder Derrick Armstrong said. "Like I said (Friday), we're going to fight no matter what. We kept fighting and we got the W."
The series evener came in front of a record crowd of 15,586 at Dudy Noble Field, the largest crowd for a NCAA baseball game on campus. 
The last two wins for the Bulldogs (22-14, 7-7) over the Rebels (28-9, 8-6) have been in comeback fashion. MSU trailed Ole Miss 6-0 in Sunday's game of last year's series in Oxford. The Bulldogs scored seven runs in the latter innings to win 7-6.
