The Ole Miss-Virginia game was suspended with a 0-0 score in the top of the second inning Friday in Omaha, Neb.
The Cavaliers had runners on first and second when the game was delayed because of lightning. Heavy rain moved in during the delay, which lasted 93 minutes before the game was suspended.
Neither team has scored, but Virginia has a pair of hits. The Rebels are hitless, going down in order in their only at bat before the delay.
Ole Miss starting pitcher Jeremy Massie has thrown 28 pitches, while Virginia starter Josh Sborz has thrown only seven.
Virginia, the only remaining national seed, will advance to the College World Series finals with a win. Ole Miss must beat the Cavaliers twice in order to advance to the finals.
The game will resume Saturday at 2 p.m. If Ole Miss wins, the teams will play again Sunday.
