To a man, that’s how the BYU Cougars described their emotions after seeing their name flash across the television screen in a theater room at coach Dave Rose’s house on Sunday afternoon. In fact, freshman center Eric Mika said he was so overcome with joy that he nearly passed out when it was announced that not only were the Cougars (23-11) in the big dance, but they had received a higher-than-expected 10 seed in the NCAA Tournament.

Fresh off his no-hitter against Northern Illinois on March 8, Oregon State’s Jace Fry was dominant once again as the Utes did not get their first hit until there were two out into the fourth inning.

Instead, the Utes left nine runners on base, found themselves in a five-run deficit by the fifth inning and saw their starting pitcher, Bret Helton, labor through four innings with deep count after deep count. With those stats, it’s not too hard to figure out Utah’s fate, which was a 5-1 loss to the Beavers on Saturday afternoon at Smith’s Ballpark.
