2018 College World Series Opening Round: Broadcast Schedule & Predictions

It’s a scorcher of a day in Omaha as the CWS gets going.

NCAA Baseball: College World Series-LSU vs Oregon State Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports

It’s opening day in Omaha at the College World Series. Let’s do that baseball!

Saturday Games

Oregon State vs North Carolina

Time: Noon PT, TV: ESPN

Prediction: Oregon State’s offense has been stellar all year and should get them the win over UNC in this one.

Washington vs Mississippi State

Time: 5 PM PT, TV: ESPN

Prediction: UW’s pitching has been stellar, but don’t bet against MSU with how clutch they’ve been in this tournament. MSU takes this one.

The winners of these two games will face each other on Monday at 4 PM PT. The losers of today’s games will play each other at 11 AM PT on Monday.

Sunday Games

Arkansas vs Texas

Time: 11 AM PT, TV: ESPN

Prediction: Just like the weather in Omaha right now, Kody Clemens and the Longhorns are red hot. I think they win this one.

Florida vs Texas Tech

Time: 4 PM PT, TV: ESPN2

Prediction: Florida may have looked a bit sluggish lately, but I still think there’s enough firepower on that roster to get them a win today.
