The College World Series rolls along Tuesday with a Bracket 1 elimination game, followed by Wednesday's Bracket 2 elimination game featuring Kent State.
Tuesday's Bracket 1 game will pit UCLA against Florida State. Each team has one loss, which means the loser will be sent packing and the winner will advance to Thursday's showdown with undefeated Arizona, which has wins over Stony Brook and UCLA. Should the UCLA/Florida State winner down the Wildcats, then it would be Zona's first loss -- which means the two teams would have a rematch Friday at 5 p.m. Eastern.
In Bracket 2 action Wednesday, Kent State will take on two-time defending College World Series champion South Carolina. USC won its CWS opener against Florida but then lost 2-1 to Arkansas, which, like Arizona, is still undefeated. Kent State, meanwhile, started out with an 8-1 drubbing at the hands of Arkansas but then notched a 5-4 win over Florida on Monday.
As such, the USC/Kent State winner will take on Arkansas Thursday at 9 Eastern. Should either team beat Arkansas, the two would play again -- for the right to advance to the title match against the Bracket 1 winner -- Friday at 9 p.m. Eastern.
Tuesday: UCLA Vs. Florida State, 8 p.m. Eastern, ESPN
Wednesday: Kent State Vs. South Carolina, 8 p.m. Eastern, ESPN
