All three games (if necessary) will be televised at 4:30 p.m. PDT on ESPN:

Tuesday: Game 2 – South Carolina is the home team
Wednesday: Game 3 – UCLA is the home team

Prior to this season, the Bruins had only advanced to the College World Series twice, going 0-2 on both occasions and not really sniffing a national title. This time around, UCLA is 3-1 in Omaha and two wins away from immortality as the final College World Series champion at Rosenblatt Stadium.
