The 2011 College World Series is now two games away from the semifinals as UNC meets Vanderbilt on Wednesday and Cal meets Virginia on Thursday in a pair of elimination games. The winner of each contest advances to the semifinals to face Florida and South Carolina respectively, where they'll have to win two more games to get to the CWS Championship Series.
This latest elimination round kicks off on Wednesday with North Carolina facing Vanderbilt for the second time this tournament. Vanderbilt defeated UNC 7-3 to open the tournament on Saturday. UNC followed that up with a 3-0 shutout of the Texas Longhorns to keep their tournament chances alive. Vanderbilt lost their subsequent game with Florida 3-1 and will look to set up a rematch and guarantee an SEC team in the national championship game.
The game will be broadcast live on Wednesday on ESPN2 at 4:00pm pacific. If you do not have cable or will be away from your television, you can also view the game via live online stream at ESPN3.com.
