  • After missing the tournament last year, the Beavers and the Tar Heels have the inside track on a spot at the College World Series.
May 29, 2017

Oregon State and North Carolina met in the College World Series finals in consecutive years in 2006 and '07, with the Beavers beating the Tar Heels both times. After each missed the NCAA tournament last season, OSU and UNC are the top two seeds in the bracket this year, which was released on Monday. The Beavers are paired with the regional hosted by the Clemson Tigers, and the Tar Heels are matched up with the Houston Cougars. The other national seeds and their pairings are Florida (No. 3) and Wake Forest; LSU (No. 4) and Southern Mississippi; Texas Tech (No. 5) and Florida State; TCU (No. 6) and Arkansas; Louisville (No. 7) and Kentucky; and Stanford (No. 8) and Long Beach State. If seedings hold, No. 1 will play No. 8 in the Supers, No. 2 will play No. 7, No. 3 will play No. 6 and No. 4 will play No. 5.

Among the teams missing are Miami, which had been in a record 44 consecutive tournaments, defending national champion Coastal Carolina and South Carolina, which won back-to-back titles in 2010 and '11. The double-elimination regionals begin this Friday and the best-of-three Super Regionals will take place from June 9-12. The College World Series starts Saturday, June 17 in Omaha, Neb., and concludes with a best-of-three finals that starts on Monday, June 26. All games can be viewed on ESPN's networks.
