The Arkansas Razorbacks make their 11th appearance in the College World Series in Omaha (Neb.) And are looking to take home their first national championship.
After beating No. 2 seed Stanford Cardinal in their first game and dropping their second game to Ole Miss, Arkansas is No. 11-1. Eliminated elimination by winning over 14 Auburn Tigers. They now face Ole Miss again in the semifinals and they have to win twice to stay alive and advance to the CWS final.
The Razorbacks faced the Rebels in the regular season at Fayetteville and won two of the three games. After the Ole Miss win against Arkansas on Monday night, the two teams are 2-2 against each other this season and 2-2 against each other in the NCAA Tournament.
“In our league, we always seem to run into SEC teams, “Arkansas head coach Dave Van Horn said.” It seems like two, three or four teams do it almost every year. That’s it. You’re going to face them. If you don’t see them out of the gate, you’ll see them.
Tonight’s game will be televised nationally on ESPN. Here’s everything you need to know about how to tune into action.
