— Oklahoma's NCAA Columbia Super Regional Game 2 was halted because of weather on Sunday, leaving the Sooners two wins from the College World Series for another day.

The game was delayed for the first time at 7:26 p.m. as severe weather approached Carolina Stadium. Following a no-rain break of over an hour where the tarp was pulled so the grounds crew could work on the infield, the radar was deemed nonthreatening enough to resume the game.

The two teams played one half-inning before a downpour rolled in, and the tarp was put back on the field at 8:40 p.m.

The game was then postponed. It will be resumed at 3 p.m. Monday. If Oklahoma (42-24) wins to force a third game, Game 3 would be played at 6 p.m.

Sunday's game ticket will be needed for admission for the conclusion of the game on Monday.

The game is scoreless entering the bottom of the sixth inning. Oklahoma starter Jonathan Gray has thrown a magnificent game, striking out nine and only allowing three hits with four walks. South Carolina's Colby Holmes has matched him, with just one hit and two walks over five innings.

South Carolina (44-17) leads the best-of-three series 1-0. The Gamecocks need to win one game to advance to their third straight College World Series. The winner of the Columbia Super Regional will face Florida in its first game at the CWS.
