HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Southern Miss did not receive the NCAA regional host site as hoped, but they will head to Tallahassee in the NCAA Regional Tournament. 

Southern Miss will play South Alabama June 3-6.

Southern Miss earned the regional spot after they won the C-USA Championship title Sunday evening in a dramatic 3-2 win against Rice University.

In the final play, Rice was trailing when a tricky exchange between center fielder Jake Sandlin, shortstop Nick Dawson, and first baseman Tim Lynch led to the toss home to Chuckie Robinson, who tagged Tristan Gray. 

The Southern Miss baseball team celebrated their C-USA win and regional advancement at Mugshots Grill in Hattiesburg for the Road to Omaha.
