After an action-packed schedule of games during regionals and super regionals, the 2019 College World Series is here and features an SEC-heavy bracket.
Four of the eight teams that will compete for NCAA baseball supremacy in Omaha play in the SEC: Mississippi State, Arkansas, Vanderbilt and Auburn. The remaining four come from the ACC (Louisville, Florida State), Big Ten (Michigan) and Big 12 (Texas Tech).
Noticeably absent from the field this year is a pair of Pac-12 schools: Defending champion Oregon State, which was knocked out in the regionals, and No. 1 UCLA, which became the seventh top overall seed to miss the CWS since 1999. Five of the eight national seeds will be in Omaha, although five of the last seven CWS champions have not been nationally ranked.
With as many as 17 possible games over a week and a half, there will be plenty of action from Omaha. Below is complete guide to following the 2019 College World Series, including the full bracket, a day-by-day TV schedule and updated results throughout the tournament.
