The most underrated sports league out there, NCAA baseball, has reached it’s apex–the College World Series. Played in Omaha, Nebraska each year the College World series is the equivalent of the Elite 8. The eight teams play in two separate pools with the winners facing off in a best-of-three championship series. Bracket 1, which starts play on Saturday, includes Mississippi State, Oregon State, Indiana, and Louisville. Although Indiana and Louisville were hosts during the regional round, it is a surprise to see them in Omaha. Frankly, it’s always a surprise to see a team from the mid-west in Omaha. Oregon State, the number three team in the nation, should be the favored to advance out of this group, although double elimination style tournaments are extremely prone to upsets. In bracket two, UNC and NCSU will rematch after an epic extra inning battle in the ACC Championship. Wake Forest won the ACC’s only CWS championship back in 1955. With disappointing exits by FSU and UVA, the research triangle rivals will be the ACC’s hope in 2013. UCLA and LSU make accompany them in what is likely the tougher of the two pools. Now you’re ready for the upcoming weekend of baseball. Here’s your schedule! Enjoy! Bracket 1 - Mississippi State - (3) Oregon State Saturday 3 p.m. on ESPN2 - Indiana - Louisville Saturday 8 p.m. on ESPN Bracket 2 - (1) North Carolina - N.C.
