After being snubbed as a regional host in the NCAA Tournament, the Oklahoma Sooners came out and proved just how wrong the selection committee was. After winning the Big 12 Tournament title, the Sooners went 8-2 in the NCAA Tournament, including 3-0 in the College World Series to advance to the championship series for the first time since 1994.
Oklahoma led off with an incredible offensive display that included long bombs and a clutch to-out hit. The pitching staff was well settled, especially in the College World Series. Jake Bennett, Cade Horton and David Sandlin allowed seven runs on three starts.
The Sooners now face another undefeated team, Ole Miss Rebels, who was eliminated in the SEC tournament single-elimination round.
The rebels turned it around in the NCAA Tournament, leading Coral Gables Regional and Ole Miss to their Super Regional. In the College World Series, Ole Miss defeated Arkansas in two of his three encounters. The last two are low scoring deals.
