AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- For nearly four months, Texas pitcher Taylor Jungmann was simply unbeatable.

And then he lost two games in a row.

The Longhorns need their junior ace to find his dominating form again heading into the College World Series. Texas (49-17) plays Florida (50-17) on Saturday.

Jungmann went 13-0 before two losses in the postseason. Kent State jumped on him for seven earned runs in the first game of the Austin regional.

He came back much stronger in a 3-1 loss to Arizona State a week later, a game Texas loss despite Jungmann giving up just one earned run on three hits in a 7.1 innings.
