After the action on Saturday, the stage is now set to crown a new national champion in college baseball as both the Vanderbilt Commodores and Virginia Cavaliers have advanced to the final series, played under a best-of-three format.
To start off the day, this tough Virginia team took care of their business against the Ole Miss Rebels, who got a lot further in this tournament than some had thought they would have. It was the Cavaliers’ second win over the Rebels in Omaha this year. They opened up their College World Series experience with a 2-1 win against Ole Miss, and this outing was even better for the Hoos as they notched a 4-1 victory.
The night game between Vanderbilt and Texas, however, was filled with a little more drama.
It took a walk-off win in the bottom of the 10th inning for the Commodores to take their first ever trip to the College World Series finals. With the bases loaded, Tyler Campbell notched himself an infield single to send his team to the college baseball promised land.
Now, again, the stage is set for Vanderbilt and Virginia to face off for the national championship.
With that, here’s a look at the TV schedule for the final series of the tournament that begins on Monday.
