Omaha: With what started with eight baseball teams the College World Series has lived up all the hype. After a long grueling week we are finally down to two teams ready to battle for the Championship. Arkansas and Oregon State have come out on top and will battle it out for the Championship starting on Monday night in a best out three series.
Arkansas has been nothing but unstoppable throughout the entire time in Omaha. The Razorbacks are coming into the Championship series having outscored their opponents 23-11 and going undefeated in World Series play. Arkansas has been one of the top teams in the entire country all season long and is the clear-cut favorite to win the whole thing.
Oregon State defeated Mississippi State in two straight games to advance to the championship round against the Arkansas Razorbacks. The Beavers are a team who is playing with a chip on their shoulder as they have had a season full of the field drama. With the main focus being on star pitcher Luke Heimlich who was found guilty of sexual assault. Oregon State will look to contain the high flying bats of Arkansas in a best of three series.
With 98 home runs on the year, the Razorbacks will have the clear-cut advantage when it comes to offense in the College World Series.
Oregon State will be coming into the series with only 65 total home runs on the season.
The College World Series will come down to a massive pitching duel as both respected squads average a similar 3.65 ERA.
