Here is an update after Media day in Omaha

Media day is a wrap for Thursday, June 17 at TD Ameritrade Park Omaha. All eight teams have now arrived ahead of the College World Series beginning Saturday. Here is the weekend schedule for the first round of games Saturday and Sunday:

Saturday, June 19
Game 1: Stanford vs. NC State | 2 p.m. ET | ESPN
Game 2: Vanderbilt vs. Arizona | 7 p.m. | ESPN

Sunday, June 20
Game 3: Tennessee vs. Virginia | 2 p.m. | ESPN2
Game 4: Texas vs. Mississippi State | 7 p.m. | ESPN2Click or tap here to see the full College World Series tournament schedule.

Here's what else to know two days from first pitch:

  • NCAA.com's Wayne Cavadi picked an under-the-radar player from all 8 teams in Omaha that you should know.
  • ICYMI: We put together an expert panel of D1Baseball.com and NCAA.com contributors to break down the juiciest storylines entering the CWS.
  • D1baseball's Kendall Rogers and Aaron Fitt joined Michella Chester to preview the CWS. 
  • We got the chance to talk to players from all eight teams at Media day today. Here is what we learned:  
    • Mississippi State, as you know, is in Omaha for the third consecutive year. Head coach Chris Lemonis said his players have told him "we are tired of getting t-shirts, we want the trophy." On top of that, Rowdy Jordan and Tanner Allen could be in their last year together as dynamic duo. They live together too, and both seem to think that the other is not good at cleaning. 
    • The Stanford Cardinal mustaches are better than ever. They have purchased jet-black hair dye to be TV ready, and love that their entire team has something to get behind as a group and bond over. Fear the stache. 
    • Tennessee's Evan Russell was the original purchaser of the pink home run "daddy" hat. The hat has safely traveled with the team and is ready for some bombs in Omaha. 
    • Texas' Mike Antico is a great leader for this Longhorns team and although he is the leadoff guy and a part of the Texas team through and through, his New Jersey self still has not used the word "yall."
    • Vanderbilt's Kumar Rocker and Jack Leiter use friendly competition to elevate each other's game on the mound. 
    • NC State has an 19-4 record on the road and they are 13-12 at home. Some might call them "road warriors," especially after taking down No. 1 Arkansas on the road. But, head coach Elliott Avent said it doesn't really have anything to do with being at home or away ... they have always been a good baseball team and it just starting working on the road. 
    • Arizona's Jacob Berry and Daniel Susac are two of the most prolific freshman stars in the nation. They too are able feed off of one another and make each other better. Head coach Jay Johnson said their maturity is well beyond their years. 
    • Virginia's Stephen Schoch has arrived in Omaha with his teammates and was, of course, making every one laugh. His teammates said this isn't new for them, when the cameras aren't around, he is like this all the time.

2021 College World Series: Predictions, numbers to know

Mississippi State Athletics Mississippi State baseball

The 2021 College World Series begins on Saturday, June 19. That date will mark 723 days since the last CWS game was played. Mike Lopresti breaks down some other numbers of note heading into this weekend's action. Listed below are just a few.

  • 29: Schools that have won the College World Series. Five — Texas, Stanford, Virginia, Arizona and Vanderbilt — will play in Omaha this weekend. Vanderbilt, Arizona and Virginia have accounted for four of the eight most recent titles.
  • 6-0: Virginia’s record in elimination games in the NCAA tournament. This, after the Cavaliers lost their openers of both the regional and super regional, so they've spent June with their backs against the wall. 
  • 47: Consecutive games Arizona’s Donta Williams has reached base. The last time he failed to get on base was March 13.

In preparation for the CWS, journalists from NCAA.com and d1baseball.com recently discussed the biggest storylines and shared their predictions. You can read their conversation right here

Mississippi State earns final CWS spot

Mississippi State defeats Notre Dame 11-7

Mississippi State pounced on four different Notre Dame pitchers during a six-run second inning as the Bulldogs beat the Fighting Irish 11-7 in a decisive third game at the Starkville Super Regional, propelling MSU into the 2021 College World Series.

Bulldogs' catcher Logan Tanner cranked a three-run home run during MSU's huge second inning while Tanner Allen added a solo shot in the third for one of his two RBI on the night. MSU led by as many as eight runs before Notre Dame got within four on an absolute missile of a home run by Niko Kavadas in the seventh, but reliever Landon Sims struck out the side in the eighth. After letting two runners reach in the ninth, Sims got Kavadas to ground into a game-ending double play to reserve Mississippi State a spot in in Omaha.

1:52 am, June 15, 2021

Niko Kavadas' moonshot pulls Notre Dame within four

And suddenly it's a four-run game with six outs to play. Niko Kavadas absolutely demolished a baseball for a two-run shot that might still be somewhere in the Starkville night sky. Kavadas got every last bit of a 3-1 pitch and sent it well beyond the right field stands at Dudy Noble Field. The blast cut the Mississippi State lead to 11-7.

1:00 am, June 15, 2021

Notre Dame cuts away at deficit with a 3-run fifth

Notre Dame briefly halved its deficit after putting up three runs in the top of the fifth inning. Ryan Cole picked up his second RBI of the game with base knock and Carter Putz plated two with a double to left. Mississippi State got one of the runs back with a Scotty Debrule RBI single.

12:34 am, June 15, 2021

Tanner Allen's solo shot pushes MSU lead back to six

Just as quickly as Notre Dame picked up a run, Tanner Allen got it right back for Mississippi State. Allen launched the first pitch of his at-bat to deep center for a towering solo shot that put the Bulldogs up 8-2. Watch his tenth home run of the year below.

12:22 am, June 15, 2021

Notre Dame gets a run back in the third

Notre Dame cut the deficit to 7-2 with an RBI single from Spencer Myers in the top of the third inning. The Irish got a leadoff double from David LaManna before Myers plated him two pitches later. MSU's Houston Harding settled down after the run came across, striking out the next two batters before a soft grounder ended the inning.
12:13 am, June 15, 2021

Mississippi State erupts for six runs in the second

Mississippi State utilized some small ball with the bases loaded before Logan Tanner mashed a three-run home run as part of a six-run second inning for the Bulldogs. MSU batted around in the frame, jumping out to a 7-1 lead over Notre Dame through two innings.

Rowdey Jordan came up big again and started the scoring by beating out a double play down the line to plate Brad Cumbest. Tanner Allen's sac fly brought Kellum Clark home and Kamren James' laser of a single was too much for ND shortstop Zack Prajzner to handle, allowing Jordan to score from second. The Bulldogs' ability to extend the inning paid off when Tanner smoked a 1-2 pitch to deep center for his 14th home run of the year.

Will Mercer was charged with three of those runs after giving up a leadoff single to Cumbest before issuing consecutive walks to Kellum Clark and Lane Forsythe. Alex Rao was the first arm out of the bullpen, tagging Mercer out after 38 pitches. Notre Dame would also Liam Simon and Joe Sheridan during the inning. ND conceded more walks (5) than hits (4) in the frame.

11:29 pm, June 14, 2021

Mississippi State pulls level off of ND error

Mississippi State's Rowdey Jordan led off the game for the Bulldogs in the bottom of the first reaching on an error by ND third baseman Jack Brannigan. That mistake proved costly as Kamren James and Luke Hancock laced back-to-back base hits, the second of which brought Jordan around to score. ND pitcher Will Mercer was able to limit the damage with a tough throw to first that prevented Logan Tanner from loading the bases before he got Scotty Debrule to ground out.
11:19 pm, June 14, 2021

Cole HR gives Notre Dame early 1-0 lead

Notre Dame's Ryan Cole wasted no time in getting the Fighting Irish ahead in Game 3. The senior took a hearty swing at the first pitch he saw and got just enough of the baseball to squeak a solo home run over the wall in right-center field. MSU's Tanner Allen got a good read on the ball but was unable to bring it back into play as the Irish take a 1-0 lead.

11:00 pm, June 14, 2021

Mississippi State-Notre Dame battling now for the final CWS spot

Mississippi State or Notre Dame will round out the 2021 College World Series field after the first seven spots in Omaha were locked up. The Bulldogs and Fighting Irish are underway in a decisive third game on ESPN2 after first pitch was scheduled for 7 p.m. ET Monday.

Arkansas scores 21, trounces NC State in Game 1

Arkansas defeats NC State 21-2 in game 1 of the DI baseball Super Regionals

Game 1 of the Fayetteville Super Regional was all Arkansas. The Razorbacks chalked up an insurmountable 21-run offensive performance to defeat NC State 21-2.

The Arkansas Razorbacks scored in clusters: Three in the second, four in the third, three in the fifth, six in the sixth and five in the eighth.

Cullen Smith's grand slam in the third inning electrified the crowed in Fayetteville and might as well have closed the door on NC State's hopeful comeback. The grand salami made it 7-1 Arkansas.

NC State called on three different pitchers in the sixth inning in attempt to soften the mounting deficit. Within that frame, six runs scored, three of which were walked home.

Arkansas' pitching did not waiver. Starter Patrick Wicklander threw six innings of one run ball. He allowed six hits and two walks and notched six strikeouts.

Super regional preview: Breaking down all 16 teams

Arkansas HR GIF

The 2021 NCAA baseball tournament field has been whittled down to 16 teams at eight super regional sites. Super regionals will run this Friday through Monday to determine which eight teams will be going to Omaha for the College World Series.

NCAA.com's Wayne Cavadi recapped how we got here and previewed all eight super regional matchups. Click or tap here to read the full breakdown and see the complete schedule. 

Here's a snippet of Cavadi's preview, focusing on the Fayetteville Super Regional, hosted by No. 1 overall seed Arkansas. The Razorbacks take on North Carolina State in a series starting Friday.

How we got here: The Fayetteville Regional was a memorable one with tournament surprise NJIT stealing a win and the hearts of Arkansas fans. Despite dropping a game to Nebraska, a pinch-hit three-run bomb from Charlie Welch and another absolutely absurd performance from Kevin Kopps sent the OmahaHogs one step closer to the College World Series. This time Kopps, the tournament MVP, tossed seven shutout innings in relief, allowing only three hits while striking out eight. This is Arkansas third-straight Super Regional appearance, and the Razorbacks have won the previous two in a row.

The Wolfpack bounced back from a heartbreaking 1-0 loss in the ACC championship to sweep through the Ruston Regional with relative ease. They outscored their opponents 30-11 in the three games, including back-to-back wins over host Louisiana Tech to get to their first Super Regional since 2013. Luca Tresh smashed his team-high 14th home run in the clincher to help NC State score 14 runs, the most in program history in a regional final.
