College World Series 2018: Bracket & results from Oregon State’s NCAA championship

Oregon State beat Arkansas in three games in the finals.

NCAA Baseball: College World Series-North Carolina vs Oregon State Steven Branscombe-USA TODAY Sports

Oregon State was a game from elimination twice, and used a pair of two-game winning streaks to win their third NCAA baseball championship, and their first since 2007.

The Beavers needed to beat Mississippi State to get to the finals, then trailed Arkansas by a game and trailed in the ninth inning of Game 2. A foul pop fly that could have been the final out of a Razorbacks title instead fell to the grass, and Oregon State rallied to win that game, and then Game 3 to win the championship at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha.

Tournament preview

The 2018 College World Series is here, with eight teams vying for the NCAA baseball tournament championship over a week and a half at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha.

The regional and subregional rounds have whittled down the tournament field from 64 to eight teams. Left standing is No. 1 overall Florida, the defending champion and one of three SEC teams to make the College World Series.


  • Arkansas Razorbacks
  • Florida Gators
  • Mississippi State Bulldogs
  • North Carolina Tar Heels
  • Oregon State Beavers
  • Texas Longhorns
  • Texas Tech Red Raiders
  • Washington Huskies


These teams will battle in two double-elimination brackets until two teams remain. The two finalists will play a best-of-three series from June 25-27.

Television & online coverage

The up to 17 games over 11 to 12 days will be televised by the ESPN family of networks, mostly on ESPN with some games on ESPN2 and ESPNU. Online streaming is available through Watch ESPN.
