Defending champion Oregon was eliminated by Michigan in a Regional.

The CWS is a unique experience when it comes to NCAA championships. The event has been in Omaha since 1950, and until 2010, was held at Rosenblatt Stadium. The event moved to the TD AmeriTrade Park in 2010.

Of the eight teams remaining, five started the tournament as No. 1 seeds -- Texas Tech, Arkansas, Vanderbilt, Louisville, and Mississippi State. Of those five, only Vanderbilt has won a national championship (2014), though Texas Tech (three appearances), Louisville (four appearances), Arkansas (two appearances) and Mississippi State (10 appearances) arenโ€™t strangers to Omaha. Arkansas is last yearโ€™s runner-up.

The tournament starts June 15 with two  games. The first three games of the tournament and the two championship games are sold out on the primary market, but secondary market tickets are available for all games.

Below is a look at each game of the tournament:

College World Series Game 1 - Texas Tech vs. Michigan

Michigan is clearly the Cinderella of this tournament after knocking off No. 1 seed UCLA to get to the CWS for the first time in 35 years. On the flip side, Texas Tech is no stranger to CWS, having reached the event three times in the last decade. The teams met once during the 2019 regular season, and the Red Raiders swept the Wolverines in a three-game series.

College World Series Game 2 - Arkansas vs. Florida State

Florida State eliminated another SEC team to get to the CWS, beating LSU in the Super Regionals. Both FSU and Arkansas bring plenty of coaching experience to the CWS -- Florida Stateโ€™s Mike Martin and Arkansasโ€™ Dave Van Horn lead all active coaches in CWS appearances. Martin has 17 and Van Horn has eight. While Martin has the edge in overall numbers, heโ€™s never beaten Arkansas in the postseason.

College World Series Game 3 - Vanderbilt vs. Louisville

Vanderbilt is no stranger to the CWS and won the whole thing in 2014. This time around, the Commodores face a familiar foe -- Vanderbilt and Louisville played a single game during the 2019 season with the Commodores winning. Louisville lost its first postseason game and came out of the losersโ€™ bracket to win the Regional before sweeping East Carolina at the Super Regional. Vanderbilt came out of the losersโ€™ bracket at the Super Regional on a no-hitter to advance.

College World Series Game 4 - Mississippi State vs. Auburn

Auburn is headed to the CWS for the first time since 1997 and will face a familiar foe -- SEC rival Mississippi State. The teams played a three-game series in March with Mississippi State the winner. Mississippi outscored Auburn 40-23, including scoring 20 runs in one game. The Bulldogs are making their second consecutive appearance. Neither team has ever won the title.
