No. 5 Texas A&M survived their first bout with elimination in Omaha, defeating No. 9 Texas 10-2 to send the Longhorns home.
Now they eye a rematch with Oklahoma, who originally sent them to the losers bracket. First the Aggies must contend with the Fighting Irish, who were recently beaten by Oklahoma on their side of the bracket.
Who gets to rematch with the Sooners? Here's a look at the latest odds.

Texas A&M vs. Notre Dame Prediction and Pick
Notre Dame was able to take down No. 1 Tennessee in the Knoxville Super Regional and Jack Findlay was a big reason why. Findlay went 5 scoreless innings in the Game 3 win over the Volunteers.
Findlay went 2.1 scoreless in the CWS win over Texas and will likely have a big role against A&M after the Fighting Irish used their top two pitchers over the weekend in Omaha.
John Bertrand got the win over Texas, and Austin Temple only went 1.1 in the loss to Oklahoma. With their backs against the wall, Notre Dame could use all three on Tuesday.
I expect Nathan Dettmer to go for A&M. He pitched against Oklahoma in the loss and could not get out of the second inning after giving up seven earned runs. He has been the Aggies' second-best starter this season, but with a team ERA almost a run higher than the Fighting Irish, Dettmer will have to go much deeper this outing.
Notre Dame has had a very special run into the CWS, especially taking out Tennessee. I just don’t see that coming to an end yet.
Pick: Notre Dame -1.5 (+120)
