Update:
Two teams are left to battle it out in the NCAA Men’s College World Series. The baseball championship begins Saturday at Charles Schwab Field in Omaha.

After starting out with 299 Division I baseball teams, the field was narrowed down to 64 that qualified for the 2022 NCAA Baseball Tournament. Eight made it to the College World Series, and now, the battle for the championship is down to the last two standing.

Unexpected NCAA College World Series finalists

The title will be clinched by either Ole Miss or Oklahoma, two teams that went into the postseason as non-ranked national seeds.

The Sooners’ journey to the championship has been convincing, defeating Florida and Liberty in the regionals and Virginia Tech in the Super regionals, then having an undefeated record once they reached Omaha. They took down Texas A&M and Notre Dame to earn their championship seat. Oklahoma is now aiming to be the first team to win both the women’s and men’s College World Series in the same year.

The Rebels, on the other hand, seemed unlikely finalists after being the last team to be admitted to the tournament. They however proved their mettle by going 8-1 since, prevailing over the Arkansas Razorbacks to get their shot at the title.

Oklahoma, as the better-seeded team, will be playing as the home team for game 1, while Ole Miss will be playing host for Game 2. If a third game is necessary, a coin toss will decide who will throw the first pitch.

The championship games will take place at Charles Schwab field in Omaha, Nebraska, which has hosted the NCAA Men’s College World Series since 2011.
