OMAHA! OMAHA! The Greatest Show on Dirt has arrived. Eight teams have punched their way to the Men's College World Series, after two weeks of grueling play in the Regionals and Super Regionals. In just over a week, we will have a new national champion.

The first phase of the MCWS is a double-elimination, round-robin tournament with two brackets. Each bracket has four teams. By next Thursday, each bracket will have produced a winner. The two bracket winners will then meet in a best two games of three championship. 

Earlier this week, we previewed each of the Super Regionals with an analysis of which team should win each one. Read that article here. For a complete schedule of the College World Series, read that article here.
