College baseball games typically don't end at 1:36 a.m. EST on a school night, unless nasty weather dictates long delays.

However, this wasn't the case for Tuesday's game between UGA and Clemson. 

Playing under relatively clear skies, UGA and Clemson made history the old-fashioned way by stifling the opposing hitters for 20 innings and then posting the longest game in Bulldogs baseball history (6 hours, 36 minutes).

Georgia freshman Conner Tate officially ended this exhaustive duel of top-20 teams with a walk-off single in the 20th inning, breaking a 2-all tie

But Tate's accomplishment will likely serve as a footnote to Tuesday's duel, which also established a new UGA record for strikeouts (26).

All told, the Clemson and Georgia pitching staffs accounted for 50 strikeouts ... which almost certainly stands as a record for games involving SEC and/or ACC clubs.

Here's another school mark to celebrate: Three Georgia pitchers (starter Tim Elliott, Logan Moody, Darryn Pasqua) notched seven or more strikeouts in a single outing.

For Georgia, the country's No. 6 team (19-3 overall), there won't be much of a breather after the Clemson game. 

No. 21 Missouri opens a three-game series in Athens on Thursday.
