In reply to: Duke & Tenn. Tech one win from advancing to CWS. *  posted by hibernianangst

So are Oregon State and Washington, which I suspect is the northernmost team ever to make the CWS (it's their first trip to Omaha). Obviously, the climate in Seattle is more conducive to early-season baseball than it is in the Upper Midwest -- UW had its home opener this year on February 24 -- but it's striking how the Pac-12 balance of power has shifted to the Northwest.

The SEC will have 3 teams -- Mississippi State (which eliminated Vandy), and today's winners between South Carolina-Arkansas and Auburn-Florida.
