College World Series 2011: Virginia, Cal Fight To Stay In Omaha

Virginia and Cal will face-off Thursday at 7:00 p.m. EST for the right to play South Carolina on Friday and move one step closer to the College Word Series title. Cal or Virginia would need to beat South Carolina twice to advance, but, one thing at a time.

It's apropos for these Bears that they'll see Virginia here in a do-or-die situation. The Bears made things hard on themselves by losing their opening game Saturday to Virginia in the double-elimination tournament. Cal then beat Texas A&M while Virginia dropped one to South Carolina, leading up to this game.

Still, it's been that kind of season for Cal, who is playing in what might be considered the most improbable season in their history.

The game will be broadcast on ESPN2 as well as ESPN3.com.
