After cruising through its NCAA Tournament Regional round, Missouri softball finds itself facing James Madison in the NCAA Tournament Super Regional round.

The Tigers and Dukes are squaring off in a best-of-three series that started with a 2-1 victory for James Madison Friday night. Mizzou roared back late Saturday with a 7-1 win, forcing a winner-take-all Game 3 on Sunday. 

The Dukes and Tigers will face off in the rubber match of the Columbia super regional at 11 a.m. on ESPN.

Coming into the series, Mizzou (41-15) had not given up a run in the NCAA Tournament. Missouri entered Friday's contest fresh off a 5-0 win over Iowa State on May 23 — a win highlighted by pitcher Jordan Weber's no-hitter. The sophomore struck out seven betters, punching Mizzou's ticket to the next round of the tournament.
