Omaha Bound!

Congratulations to the LSU baseball team for making it back to Omaha after destroying UC-Irvine in the final game of the Super Regionals. LSU is swinging some hot bats right now and has as good a chance as anyone to come out of the College World Series victorious.

The road won't be easy for the Tigers this year. This is one of the toughest College World Series in recent memory. With powerhouse teams throughout the bracket -- Rice, Florida State, Miami, North Carolina, Stanford, Georgia -- there will be no easy games. LSU faces two-time national runner-up North Carolina in game one and then is paired up with Rice/Fresno State. Fresno is the Cinderella team of the World Series, being the first 4th seed to make the championship, so they'll have the sentimental fan support.

LSU is no stranger to Omaha and the Omaha residents love the Tigers. Good luck to LSU, regardless of the World Series outcome, you guys have brought back the magic and made LSU baseball the top topic in Baton Rouge again.
