College World Series--How It Works



Yesterday, the seeds and brackets were announced for the 2016 College World Series. We all know that the road to Omaha is long, but it’s also twisting with a hybrid of different tourney formats involved. So, NoDef is offering a quick primer as we prepare to watch five Louisiana teams compete for the big prize.

Louisiana may not have a pro baseball franchise, but the Pelican State is dominant at the college level. Five teams from the state received seeds to the College Baseball World Series. Baton Rouge and Lafayette will each host regionals.

Louisiana will be well represented in the Division I Baseball Championship this summer. LSU and ULL were respectively given the eight and six seeds in the NCAA’s summer classic.

Don’t look now, but things seem to be coming together at just the right time for the LSU Tigers baseball team going into the opening round of the College World Series in Omaha, Nebraska. The squad comes into Sunday’s matchup vs. UCLA (7 p.m., ESPN2) riding a seven game winning streak, having not tasted defeat since a 1-4 loss May 23 at Arkansas.

With the SEC championship firmly in their grasp, LSU is set to go prove themselves on the national stage. But there won't be a Mad Hatter involved in this late spring spree. The Tigers baseball team is headed down the road to the College World Series, and their eyes are on the big prize after a successful regular season.
