The No. 5 Texas A&M Aggies take on the No. 12 Oklahoma Sooners in a critical semifinal matchup in the College World Series this afternoon in Omaha at 2:00 PM EST.
Oklahoma pulled off a 13-8 victory over the Aggies back on Friday and can advance to the championship round with another win.
After staving off elimination with wins over Texas and Notre Dame, Texas A&M faces a third consecutive do-or-die matchup as they hope to keep their season alive.
Who has the edge in this battle of two teams who could win it all? Can the Sooners' offense stay hot or will the Aggies live to fight another day?

Texas A&M vs. Oklahoma Prediction and Pick
The Oklahoma offense feels inevitable. Perhaps they're inspired by the success from the Sooners softball team that won a national championship while looking like one of the best teams ever. Oklahoma is straight mashing and I'm not sure there's a team in the country that can stop them.
Peyton Graham and Tanner Tredaway lead an incredible Sooners lineup that's averaging 8.33 runs per game in June; joining some pretty decent company along the way.
The Aggies play a contrasting style, relying on an elite pitching staff to pull out victories. Over their last two games, both times facing elimination, Texas A&M relievers threw six innings of one-hit ball, allowing just three hits.
The Sooners are just too good. Oklahoma has won their first two College World Series games twice in school history. Both times they won the national championship. With perhaps the two best players remaining in the tournament, this feels like the Sooners time.
I'll back Oklahoma to eliminate Texas A&M and move one step closer to winning their first championship since 1994.
Pick: Oklahoma -1.5 (+125)
