Texas, Austin Wood top BC in longest NCAA affair

A fine job by appropriately-named Texas reliever Austin Wood on Saturday.  In a 25 inning, 7 hour affair, Texas defeated Boston College 3-2 in the longest NCAA game on record.  

Wood pitched 13 innings of scoreless ball.  More impressively, he allowed no hits for 12 1/3 innings of it.  Wood struck out 14 and threw 169 pitches.

Here’s the box score from University of Texas’ web site.

And kudos to the 7000+ fans who stayed with the game for seven hours.
