OMAHA, Neb. — The College World Series game between Virginia and Mississippi was suspended after a 93-minute lightning and rain delay at TD Ameritrade Park on Friday night.

The game, tied 0-0, will resume Saturday at 3 p.m. EDT with Virginia batting in the top of the second inning. The Cavaliers have runners on first and second base.
