Yesterday, the Rebels overcame an 0-2 deficit to score 6 unanswered runs and defeat the TCU Horned Frogs in the opening game of the College Station NCAA regional. Shortly after that, the Texas A&M Aggies beat the Dayton Flyers 4-1.

Right now, the losers of yesterday's game are playing in the regionals first elimination game. TCU is leading Dayton 6-4 in the fourth inning at the time of the publication, a bit of information which I will neglect to update, so visit WatchESPN.com if you're interested in that. The winner of that game will face the loser of today's Ole Miss vs. TAMU game. Here's what you need to know about TCU.

Regular season record - 43 -16

Conference record - 16-8 (BigXII, for now)

Conference finish - 2nd (Just behind Baylor)

Head coach - Rob Childress (6 years)

Notable out of conference opponents - Michigan State (three game sweep), Cal State Fullerton (1-2 against CSF), Rice (4-5 L)

Of note - They're going to be in the SEC next year. Love/hate them accordingly.

Offensive leaders - Tyler Naquin (.385 AVG, 46 RBI, .543 SLG), Jacob House (.314 AVG, 8 HR, .482 SLG)

Notable pitchers - Texas A&M will throw Ross Stripling against us, a senior righty who is a pretty impressive prospect. He's 10-3 over fifteen appearances. He's pitched 118.0 innings with a 2.90 ERA and an opposing batting average of .221 and 110 K. This won't be easy.

Fun facts - Their baseball stadium is named for an ice cream, which is absolutely delicious.
