Although the UCLA Bruins came up short in their bid to become NCAA champions, the 2012 College World Series rolls on in Omaha. Following a thrilling run, the South Carolina Gamecocks will advance to the Championship Finals to take on the Arizona Wildcats in a best-of-three series to determine a national champion.
The Gamecocks won three straight elimination games to reach the finals. The last of those games came on Friday night, when South Carolina overcame a 2-0 deficit to knock off the Arkansas Razorbacks by a final score of 3-2. South Carolina reaches the finals by going 4-1 in five games in their bracket. The Arizona Wildcats, meanwhile, waltzed into the finals without having lost a single game.
The first game of the finals will take place on Sunday at 5:00 p.m. PT and will be televised on ESPN 2.
