FULLERTON, Calif. (AP) _ Overwhelmed by a superior Cal State-Fullerton team, a better-than-expected season came to an end for Mississippi State. Aaron Rifkin hit three home runs and Mike Rouse hit his fourth homer in two games as the Titans beat the Bulldogs 9-3 to sweep an NCAA super regional Saturday night. The top-seeded Titans (46-16) earned their fifth trip to the College World Series in the last 11 years and 11th overall. The Bulldogs (39-24) were swept in a super regional for the second straight season. Despite the youthful team's punchless performance in the super regional, the season has to be viewed as an overall success. ``I'm very excited about what this team accomplished and how they fought back from adversity all year, but I really feel for the young men right now,'' said Mississippi State head coach Pat McMahon. Heading into the final weekend of the regular season, the Bulldogs had yet to secure a spot in the Southeastern Conference tournament. But Mississippi State beat Mississippi twice in the final weekend and went on to win the SEC tournament outright for the first time in 14 years. That earned the Bulldogs a No. 1 seed in a regional at Columbus, Ohio, that they won without dropping a game. Against Cal State-Fullerton, however, the gritty Bulldogs didn't have enough firepower or power pitchers to compete with the Titans.
