In the early game on Saturday afternoon, the Arkansas Razorbacks defeated Cal State Fullerton leaving the Titans to await the loser of the late game between LSU and Virginia. After the Cavaliers fell in the late innings, it set up a rematch of last years Fullerton regional between the Titans and Cavaliers. A meeting which ended the Wahoo's season last year.
The stakes are much higher this time around for both teams. After losses yesterday, Mondays match-up is do or die for both squads. This being the first appearance for the Cavaliers, you can bet Brian O'Connor's and the boys don't want to go home just yet. The Titans have been here before, having won four national championships in Omaha with the most recent in 2004.
Cal State Fullerton is 47-15 on the season and was second only to UC Irvine in the Big West this season. The same UC Irvine team that Virginia defeated twice in the Irvine Regional.
Game time for the elimination Game 5 of the College World Series between Cal State Fullerton and Virginia is set for a 2 p.m. first pitch from Rosenblatt Stadium in Omaha on Monday.
