The regional round of the College World Series is drawing to a close, as Sunday's play will whittle down the remaining field of schools even further. 

With 33 games on the slate Saturday due to inclement weather and the double-elimination format, some of the 64 teams competing Sunday will have to play more than once. 

Here's a look at the updated results from Sunday's play. For the full bracket, click here.

Coastal Carolina 4, NC State 0

Carrying over a 1-0 lead from Saturday after rain washed out play, Coastal Carolina scored two runs in the eighth and one more in the ninth to shut out NC State and make its way to the Raleigh regional final. 

Zach Remillard drove in a pair of runs, while Mike Morrison came in relief and pitched 3.2 innings of no-hit baseball to shut down NC State. 

Rice 7, Southeastern Louisiana 2

This was another game that had to be picked up from Saturday, but the delay did nothing to slow down Rice against Southeastern Louisiana. 

While Rice batters drove in four of their runs, it was lapses in the field for Southeastern Louisiana that gave the Owls a healthy advantage. 

The Lions committed four errors on the day, including two in the eighth that led to Rice plating three runs. 

William & Mary 5, Virginia 4

The defending national champions are out after a Charles Ameer seventh-inning solo home run lifted William & Mary to a 5-4 victory, via ESPNU:

After trailing, 3-0, Virginia battled back to take a 4-3 lead in the top of the sixth before the Tribe tied things up in the bottom of the inning. 

Georgia Tech 7, UConn 5

Georgia Tech squandered a 5-0 advantage to UConn on Sunday but managed to scratch out two runs in the top of the ninth to pull out the win. 

The Yellow Jackets scored all five of their runs in the fourth inning, which was highlighted by Joey Bart's three-run home run, via ESPNU:

After UConn tied the game in the eighth, a pair of RBI singles from Connor Justus and Tristin English put Tech ahead. Georgia Tech will now face Florida in the regional final.

Long Beach State 5, Florida Atlantic 1

Long Beach State rode the arm of Tanner Brown to make it to the Coral Gables regional final. Brown went eight innings, allowing just one run on four hits. 

Daniel Jackson provided all the offense needed with a three-run shot in the third inning. He recorded four of Long Beach State's five runs for the day as it will play Miami on Monday. 

South Carolina 23, Rhode Island 2

If you like scoring, then this game was for you, as South Carolina scored in eight of nine innings, including an eight-run fifth inning. 

The Gamecocks hit three home runs on the day. TJ Hopkins led the team, who drove in five runs. Six different players drove in more than one run on the day. 

Rhode Island, on the other hand, could only muster three hits on the day, compared to South Carolina's 22. 

NC State 17, Navy 1

NC State didn't have much of a hangover after its loss to Coastal Carolina earlier on Sunday. After four innings, it was up 10-0 and used a six-run eighth inning to add insult to injury. 

Chance Shepard drove in five runs to lead NC State's offense, which collected 19 hits on the afternoon. On the mound, Johnny Piedmonte went 8.1 innings and allowed just one run on six hits. 

Tulane 4, Utah 1

A three-run third inning sparked by Jeremy Montalbano's two-run home run ensured that Tulane stayed alive in the Oxford regional. 

It was all the support Ross Massey needed as he went eight strong innings, allowing just one run while striking out four. Now Tulane has to beat Boston College twice if it wants to move on to the next stage of the College World Series. 

South Alabama 7, Southern Mississippi 5

Trailing 4-0 after five innings, South Alabama ignited for a six-run sixth inning that carried them to the Tallahassee regional final. 

There were no big flies as South Alabama played a brand of small ball, taking advantage of Southern Mississippi's mistakes and making them pay with singles. South Alabama had four in that big sixth inning to take advantage of two drawn walks and a hit-by-pitch. 

Louisiana Tech 6, Cal State Fullerton 2

Louisiana Tech jumped out to a 4-0 lead after five innings and never looked back on Sunday. Raphael Gladu, Chase Lunceford, Jordan Washam and Bryce Stark all recorded RBI in the win. 

On the hill, Cameron Linck and Nate Harris combined to allow just seven hits on the afternoon while allowing just two runs. 

Mississippi State now waits for Louisiana Tech with a trip to the Super Regionals on the line. 

Louisiana-Lafayette 10, Arizona 3

A steady Louisiana-Lafayette attack overpowered Arizona on Sunday as the Ragin' Cajuns scored in five of the eight innings they batted in. 

Stefan Trosclair went 2-for-3 with a home run and three RBI to lead Louisiana-Lafayette, while Brenn Conrad and Brian Mills drove in two runs apiece. 

Dallas Baptist 5, New Mexico 3

Dallas Baptist scored five runs in five different innings from five different players in their win on Sunday evening. 

Two of those runs came via the long ball as Camden Duzenack and Matt Duce launched a pair of solo home runs. 

East Carolina 8, William & Mary 4

After eliminating Virginia earlier on Sunday, William & Mary saw its tournament come to an end at the hands of East Carolina. 

The Pirates scored their eight runs in two, four-run innings. Parker Lamm, Charlie Yorgen, Travis Watkins and Eric Tyler accounted for all the runs with two RBI apiece. 

East Carolina also got some big contributions from their defense as ESPNU showed:

Falling behind 4-0, William & Mary did manage to tie the game in the top of the fifth, but East Carolina put things away in the bottom half of the inning. 

Arizona State 6, Gonzaga 3

Gonzaga made it interesting with a pair of runs in the bottom of the eighth to make it a 4-3 game, but two runs in the top of the ninth by Arizona State clinched the win. 

A mistake-filled third inning is what did Gonzaga in after two wild pitches, an error and a walk led to three Sun Devil runs. 

UC Santa Barbara 5, Xavier 4

A day after it destroyed Vanderbilt 15-1, Xavier came up one run short after falling behind 5-0 to UC Santa Barbara. 

Clay Fisher recorded a double and triple while going 3-for-4 with three RBI to carry UC Santa Barbara's offense. Trevor Bettencourt and Justin Kelly held the lead by keeping Xavier off of the board for the final three innings. 

Southeastern Louisiana 3, Utah Valley 2

Three first-inning runs was all the Lions needed eliminate Utah Valley, who inflicted the damage upon itself. 

Two of the runs Utah Valley allowed came due to a wild pitch and a throwing error. Domenick Carlini and Josh Green ensured that Southeastern Louisiana didn't need any more runs, limiting Utah Valley to just three hits on the day. 

Louisville 3, Wright State 1

Nick Solak provided all the offensive firepower needed for Louisville, driving in all three Cardinals runs. 

In the fourth inning, he launched a two-run home run over the left field wall and in the fifth, singled home another run. 

Drew Harrington went 7.1 innings without allowing a run to keep Wright State at bay for most of the evening. 

Minnesota 8, Wake Forest 3

Holding a 4-2 lead, Minnesota broke things open in the eighth inning with four additional runs to put Wake Forest out of view. 

Minnesota batters hit four doubles as a part of a 15-hit performance as catcher Austin Athmann went 4-for-4 with an RBI. 

Clemson 15, Western Carolina 3

Clemson took out its frustrations from losing to Oklahoma State on Saturday on Western Carolina on Sunday, scoring 15 runs on 16 hits. 

Weston Wilson went 4-for-5 with four RBI while Chris Okey and Seth Beer had a home run and three runs batted in apiece. 

The vast advantage allowed Alex Eubanks to spin a complete game in which he allowed one earned run while allowing nine hits.
