It all goes back to Omaha.
There are only eight teams left in the NCAA Baseball National Championship, and only four of them are national seeded. 1 of Tennessee was knocked out by Notre Dame in one of the most shocking results of the college baseball season. With Vols out of the picture, No. 2 Stanford is the highest remaining seed after overcoming a series deficit vs. Okon.
No. 5 Texas A&M, No. 9 Texas 14 Auburn joined Stanford University as the only national seed to make it to the 2022 College World Championships. Oklahoma, Arkansas and Ole Miss join Notre Dame to form the unranked group.
Texas could go into second place in most baseball leagues in Division I history. Their six titles are tied to LSU and only 12 USC tracks most of the time.
Stanford and Oklahoma are the only other two teams in this year’s College World Series to win it all, with each having two championships. Auburn, Notre Dame, Texas A&M, Arkansas and Ole Miss are chasing their first national title.

How does the World College Championship work?
Sixty-four teams participate in the NCAA Baseball Tournament. The sixteen national seeds get a regional host.
Once the tournament drops to 16 teams, the remaining top eight seeded get to host the Super Regionals, the best of three series that determines which teams will travel to Omaha for a chance to win the national title.
Now that the tournament has been reduced to eight teams, it’s all about the Omaha double elimination format. The two teams that compete in a double elimination match will then face off against the top three finals.
