The Bruins will be making just their third appearance in the College World Series, and first since 1997. So far UCLA is 0-4 in their previous two appearances.
However, this team has a lot going for it. Fresh off a come-from-behind win in Game Two of the Super Regionals against Cal State Fullerton, and a convincing win in Game Three, the Bruins are riding high and carry plenty of momentum to Omaha.
The Pac-10 Conference has plenty of former champions, so it's no surprise another team from this power conference has risen to the ranks of college baseball's elite.
UCLA will be facing stiff competition from the SEC and ACC. The first opponent standing in the Bruins' way will be the Florida Gators, a school that reached the finals in 2005.
Here are 10 reasons why the Bruins stand a good chance of going all the way to win their first College World Series championship in school history.
