An eventful Super Regional weekend led to a flurry of upsets, none bigger than Notre Dame toppling Tennessee, the presumptive Omaha favorite. Now that the Vols are out, who are the favorites to win the College World Series? We attempt to answer that with our College World Series re-seed.
Arkansas checks in a No. 1 after sweeping North Carolina in the Chapel Hill Super Regional. Impressive performances by Connor Noland and Will McEntire set the Hogs up nicely in both games, and the offense is clicking at the right time.
Texas earned the No. 2 spot in our re-seed. Despite some struggles from their ace, Pete Hansen, the Horns came from behind to win the Greenville Super Regional. Tristan Stevens returned to his early-season form and provided a crucial six-inning appearance for Texas in game three of the super regional.
Following the Longhorns are rivals Texas A&M and Oklahoma at Nos. 3 and 4. The two teams will face off to open the College World Series.
No. 5 Stanford slips in the re-seed after substantial struggles from their ace, Alex Williams, who has given up 11 earned runs in his six innings of NCAA Tournament pitching. He has raised his season ERA from 1.98 to 2.88 with the two subpar performances.
Notre Dame comes in at No. 6, followed by Ole Miss at No. 7 and Auburn at No. 8. All three of these teams won road super regionals over the weekend.
