Length of College Competition in DI Championship tournament.

College baseball
The longest college baseball game was played between Texas and Boston College on May 30, 2009, in a regional NCAA Division I Baseball Championship tournament game at Austin, Texas. Texas won the game, 3-2, in 25 innings as the visiting team under NCAA tournament rules on home-team declaration during a tournament. The game lasted seven hours three minutes.[12][13] Wikipedia

but the committee states

the proposed format changes would benefit the championships, coaches and student-athletes in the following ways:
(a) The current length of a dual match can reach 4.5 hours. No other sport requires a student-athlete to physically compete for this duration of time. These changes would allow dual matches to consistently be played in three hours.
