UNC-Chapel Hill Faces NC State In College World Series Tonight

College Baseball World Series in Omaha
Greg Echlin

UNC-Chapel Hill and NC State will both try to avoid elimination tonight when they meet in the College World Series.

This is the fifth match-up of the season between these two rivals and the stakes don’t get much higher. UNC and State split a pair of regular season match-ups. The Tar Heels then won a classic 18-inning affair last month during the ACC Tournament. And the Wolfpack got the latest laugh with an 8-1 victory in the College World Series this past weekend.

This tournament is double elimination and both the Heels and Pack have one loss. That means this evening’s winner will advance to play another game in Omaha while the loser returns to North Carolina. NC State is playing in its first college world series since the late 60’s. UNC is trying to win its first national title on the diamond. The only ACC school to ever win the College World Series was Wake Forest, in 1955.

UNC and NC State are scheduled to start just after 8pm on ESPN.
